(Lab Members)

Welcome! Our laboratory conducts basic and applied research on self-regulation, with specific foci on learning and health outcomes. The following briefly describes the lines of inquiry, but please click on the header for more specific project descriptions…

Self-Regulation of Learning & Health Projects. We aim to understand how motivational dynamics influence learning (e.g., social anxiety and active learning distress; perceived goal restrictiveness and procrastination, social comparison motivation and studying) and health (e.g., health messaging and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption, reasoned action and mental health, subjective fatigue and prejudice) outcomes across self-regulatory processes, such as goal setting, commitment, monitoring, striving, and resource allocation.
