Research and Teaching Interests

My research focuses on personality and individual differences, particularly those that involve interests. I study how people attend and respond to their social and non-social environments. I am interested in how individuals’ orientations toward their environments guide academic and career choices, with an emphasis on understanding participation and representation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) domains. Topics examined in my research include social-cognitive processes, person-environment fit, gender differences and diversity, interpersonal perceptions, psychometrics, and personality measurement.
