Bio/Research

I am a professor in the Psychology department at Wilfrid Laurier University. I received an Honours BA from Mount Allison University in 1994 and my PhD in social psychology from the University of Waterloo in 2000. I came to Laurier in 2000. I am a Canada Research Chair in Social Psychology, and a Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) Successful Societies program. I gratefully acknowledge funding from SSHRC, MITACS, CFI, the CRC program, and CIFAR.

My research focuses on identity, motivated social cognition, and subjective time. I examine how people’s identities extend across time, how people reconstruct the past and envision the future, and how these temporal perspectives, in turn, affect the present. I am interested in how these processes work for the personal self, interpersonal relationships, group/social identity, and national identity. These interests cross a wide range of content areas: I study self and well-being, goal pursuit (academic, health, collective action), personal and collective memories, relationship conflict management, beliefs about change and stability, moral and criminal transgressions, and human motivated cognition about climate change outcomes.
