Work in my lab is currently investigating how performance changes in important life domains affect mood, self-esteem, and subjective well-being. Other projects are investigating the effect of narcissism on perceptions of attractiveness and mate preference, and, the effects of skin tone, facial features, and prejudice (implicit and explicit) on racial judgments.
