Dr. Cheung’s research focuses on emotion processes and self-regulation. These topics are approached from both a social and developmental perspective. For example, she has studied the role of anger in the public’s support for war after 9/11. She has also studied various forms of self-regulation in families in order to examine intergenerational transmission, long-term cognitive and social functioning, and measurement issues. Her current research interest centers on the policy implications of mass anxiety in the context of cyber threats.
