Derek Isaacowitz

I am a third-year graduate student in Dr. Isaacowitz’s Lifespan Emotional Development lab. My research is primarily focused on emotion perception throughout adulthood. More specifically, I am interested in how the people in an individual’s social circle influence his or her emotion perception ability, and how this ability guides the individual’s social interactions. My other interests include the effect of context in emotion perception and the factors that improve interpersonal skills.
