Sherylin’s doctoral thesis was on emotion regulation and how a person manages difficult emotions in tough situations. Good emotion regulation helps people withstand hard times and even grow stronger through adversity. Sherylin is particularly interested in how mindfulness can build resilience and help people from all walks of life move closer towards leading more fulfilled and contented lives. She will be teaching for the MYRIAD research project being undertaken by Oxford University studying mindfulness in schools.
