Research Abstract
Stokols’ research interests include:
(1) the environmental psychology of the Internet, especially the ways in which qualities of virtual life affect people’s behavior and well-being;
(2) the “science of team science” including factors that influence the success of transdisciplinary research and training programs;
(3) the health and behavioral impacts of environmental stressors such as traffic congestion, crowding, and information overload;
(4) the application of environmental design research to urban planning and facilities design; and
(5) the design and evaluation of community health promotion programs.
