Research InterestsOur lab has recently moved toward examining emotions and self-regulatory processes in people's daily lives. We use experience-sampling methodologies to assess participant's daily life experiences rather directly. Current projects focus on: 1) Self-regulatory processes which allow people to achieve their long-toward goals in daily life; 2) Fatigue's role in self-regulatory success in daily life; 3) The role of various emotions (e.g., anger, shame, guilt) in regulating social behaviors (e.g., helping, aggression, etc.) within close personal relationships; and 4) The interplay of traits, social-cognitive processes, and situations in predicting daily behaviors. I also have a longer standing interest in anger, aggression, implicit social cognition, and emotion regulation which we continue to pursue.
