Brief Research Statement
My research has been primarily concerned with how individuals develop their views on aging and the health outcomes associated with such views. As a post-doctoral researcher, I am now investigating how context shapes motivation development across the lifespan. My research focuses on defining core aspects of proximal processes that shape goal development at different phases of the lifespan.
