      Alexandra's research focuses on the intersection of sex hormones and the stress response. In particular, the ability of estradiol to modulate the cortisol response in women. Her research also examines the influence of birth control on cortisol responses to stressful events and how ovarian hormone levels can affect the adrenal cortisol and progesterone responses to stress.
