Research:

My research is focused in two broad streams: 1) applied cognition – I am interested in how students think about themselves as learners and how these perceptions are related to what they actually do as they learn and to their subsequent performance; 2) participation in extracurricular activities – I am interested in how individuals who participate in athletic and non-athletic activities think about (and describe) themselves generally (general self-esteem) and with respect to their physical appearance (body esteem).  I’ve also conducted research focused on gender issues in academia.
