I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University. I received my B.Sc. in Psychology from Bishop’s University, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology at Concordia University. I also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Emotion & Emotion Regulation Lab and the Berkeley Personality Lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. I gratefully acknowledge funding from SSHRC and CFI.
My research interests are broad, spanning lifespan, social, personality, and health psychology. I explore the age-related structures, functions, and consequences of emotional experiences. In addition, I examine self-regulatory factors that protect older adults’ well-being and health well into advanced old age. Finally, I investigate experiences, beliefs, and definitions of well-being across the adult lifespan.
