Lab Director

I am interested in the development of explanatory models of personality traits as reflections of psychological and biological parameters within an evolved adaptive system. Personality is conceived broadly as encompassing all reasonably stable individual differences in emotion, motivation, cognition, and behavior. My Cybernetic Big Five Theory attempts to provide a unifying theory for personality psychology and personality neuroscience. If you are interested in joining the lab, as a graduate student, undergraduate, or postdoc, please contact me about the possiblity.
