My research is broadly concerned with how people perceive and judge themselves, their futures, and their social environments. I am specifically interested in how social comparisons play into such perceptions and how the immediate and broader social context influences psychological processes underlying social judgments. Additionally, I am interested in how various aspects of personality shape emotions, social perception, and social behavior.
