My research focuses on the self and social cognition. My students and I are investigating the ways that people think about themselves over time in the past and future, and how these perceptions - and their beliefs about change and stability - affect identity, motivation, and goal-pursuit. I am particularly interested in the role of subjective time which plays a powerful role in how temporally-extended selves and events are represented. I investigate how these processes apply to self, interpersonal relationships, person perception, and ingroups. I have also been focusing on how people's thinking about the future determines their willingness to overcome short-term costs to reap long-term benefits.
