There are typically 5-6 undergraduate students engaged in independent study in my laboratory every semester. We are looking for students who are motivated, reliable, and enthusiastic about working on the research to join our team.Our lab is involved in a variety of research projects, most of which are related to the social psychology of the self, such as self-control, self-esteem, and emotions. Students work 8-10 hours per week learning basic and advanced skills by assisting in all phases of the research endeavor. My goal is to prepare students for advanced training in psychology or other fields. If you are interested in becoming a member of my lab, complete an application and return it to me.


We are always interested in having motivated, creative, and insightful graduate students join our team. In general, we admit 1-2 exceptional students to the lab every year. Information about graduate training at the University at Albany and applications can be found at
