Mary Tomkins is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Social Influences and Health Behaviors lab. Her main research interest is social connectedness, specifically its association with well-being and prosocial behaviors and how it can be enhanced. She is also interested in interventions that can be developed to encourage virtue-based behavior and factors associated with moral behavior. In her spare time, she works on projects focused on religiousness, specifically how it is related to alcohol use and how it can be incorporated into brief alcohol interventions, the effects and buffers of ostracism, belongingness interventions, and the ways in which religion can be healthy or unhealthy.
