My research seeks to understand motivational differences between individuals, as well as the processes that explain how motivational variables are associated with consequential life outcomes like academic achievement, health, and career choice. I am also interested in studying how motivational variables change and develop across the lifespan with a particular focus on goal development in adolescence and young adulthood. Accordingly, my research exists squarely in the space between personality and social psychology, bridging the gap from person to situation and vice versa.
