Welcome to the 'happy lab' page!

We study a variety of topics that are all related, in some way, to the psychology of well-being and personality. This includes examining the correlates of happiness, as well as the basic processes (e.g., cognitive, emotional) underlying important individual differences. For example, recent projects include:

  • examining why people act more or less sociable or extraverted, and the cognitive and emotional consequences of this variation in behaviour.
  • examining the links among introversion, openness, imagination, introspection, and other cognitive processes.
  • examining how being exposed to nature influences goals, cooperation, cognitive performance, and moods.
  • examining how individual’s subjective connection with nature, or nature relatedness, is associated with environmentally responsible behaviour and well-being.
  • large scale, international collaborations on well-being, and to help assess and improve the replicability of psychological science.
