"The mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but wood that needs igniting." (Plutarch, On Listening to Lectures)
My research interests focus on motivation and stress management in young people.I am particularly interested in: (a) identifying diverse settings in which young people experience stress and anxiety; (b) evaluating how these experiences affect the attitudes, self-perceptions, and well-being of young people; and (c) designing evidence-based coping strategies to help young people effectively manage stress and anxiety.I consider myself a multidisciplinary researcher. My formal training is in educational psychology, but I also extend my scholarship to other disciplines such as sociology, law, geography, philosophy, and public policy. I adopt a wide range of methodological approaches, including mixed-method studies. Broadly, I seek to conduct applied research that contributes positively to youth in society.Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
