Area(s) of Expertise
My research interests focus on several related topics. One area of research pertains to the factors that influence the accuracy of personality judgments of both self and others. Research in the second area focuses on the personality processes and characteristics associated with positive psychological functioning. The third area of research integrates the first two, investigating how individual differences in social perception influence psychological adaptation across social settings.
