Biography

Teaching

I teach social and personality psychology in introductory and advanced units.

Research

I examine personality and emotion as predictors of well-being and environmental sustainability.

I have special interest in ecopsychology and nature connection.

I am an expert on the emotional consequences of ambiguity, uncertainty, and goal conflict (including anxiety and mixed emotions) and on Big Five trait theory (espeically trait Openness and Neuroticism).
