  • Current disciplinary research interests

      My research examines the impact of personal beliefs on older adults' cognitive performance and social attributions.

  • Interest in connecting sustainability to research

      I am interested in studying the beliefs that individuals have about sustainability as a way to understand how to encourage sustainable behaviors. I am also interested in whether there are cognitive and social benefits of engaging in sustainable actions (particularly in older adults).
