campanile image Research within my laboratory focuses on basic emotional, motivational, and personality processes relevant to understanding ourselves and the world we live in. Topics of particular interest involve regulation of self-image and self-esteem as a function of personality and social comparison, motivational biases in social perception, and the role that emotions and biology play in our sense of self and behavior. This research draws on methods across personality, social psychology, and statistical theory (e.g.,meta-analysis).

Self and Social Perception Laboratory.
