Research Interests

I am an experimental social psychologist and most of my research focuses on self-related motives (e.g., meaning, self-esteem). My research touches on many topics of social life such as prejudice, personal relationships, self and identity, social cognition, attitudes, culture and belief systems, and health and well-being.
