The main focus of my research is on the impact of self-regulation processes on social interaction and intergroup behavior. As a part of this I have been studying social interaction via computer-mediated communicaiton. My work covers phenomena such as social discrimination, prejudice, and intragroup processes (e.g., knowledge exchange), as well as the impact of self-regulation in the context of social power and leadership. More recently, I have started to conduct Research on the impact of threat and discrete emotions on memory and interpersonal behavior.
