ABOUT MY COLLABORATORS:
I attended Purdue University for my undergraduate degree, where I worked with several esteemed professors: Dr. Duane Wegener (attitudes and stereotyping); Dr. Ximena Arriaga (violence in intimate relationships); Dr. James Nairne (human memory and cognition); and Dr. Amanda Diekman (social role theory; sex differences). Dr. Diekman also directed my Honors Thesis.
I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Dr. Frank Fincham, who is now at Florida State University, from 2004-05. Dr. Fincham is an extremely productive forgiveness researcher, and he also conducts research on marriage.
At Iowa State University, I worked with Dr. Susan Cross, who is interested in the role of the self in cognitive, motivational, emotional, and social processes, with a particular interest in cultural variation in these processes. To learn more about the projects going on in the lab, please go here.
In addition, I worked with Dr. Zlatan Krizan, who is interested in how personality shapes how one perceives one's future, worth, and place in social context. To learn more about other projects in Dr. Krizan's lab, visit the SSPEL webpage.
