JENNIFER A. JOY-GABA
In general, my research interests span both cognitive and social psychology. The core of my research involves investigating explicit and implicit attitudes and motivation. Specifically, I am interested in how these social processes influence cognitive operations like perception and decision making.
My current research is aimed at investigating how social media influences our attitudes and decisions. If you are interested in joining my lab as a research assistant, please complete an application.
I am NOT accepting graduate students for Fall 2021.
