Derek Isaacowitz

I am a fourth-year graduate student in Dr. Isaacowitz’s Lifespan Emotional Development lab. My research is primarily focused on emotion perception and interpersonal interaction throughout adulthood. More specifically, I am interested in the underlying mechanisms of emotion perception accuracy and how emotion perception accuracy guides an individuals behavior in interpersonal interactions. Currently, I am investigating how emotion perception ability may relate the an individual’s ability to help other’s regulate their emotions in a social context.
