Bio

Research Interests 
I am a social-developmental psychologist interested in understanding how personality and social factors influence a person’s developmental course from conception to death. I am interested in understanding how to raise children to grow up to be healthy, productive members of society; including, finding supportive relationships and having a family, supporting themselves and their family, and not bringing harm to others. More specifically, I study the role that self-perceptions, such as growth mindset and self-esteem, play in fostering thriving lives throughout the life span, and how best to impact these self-perceptions in the U.S. and in developing countries.
