Research Interests: I am interested in understanding why people give up on goals and predicting when they will. Goal disengagement has long been described as an important self-regulatory skill: Although persistence is essential to success in many goal pursuits, giving up is sometimes rational and adaptive. This intuitive claim lacks strong theoretical and empirical support. My work seeks to fill in this gap. I am interested in goal contexts that are central to people’s lives and wellbeing, like substance use abstinence goals. I am also interested in improving the value and rigor of psychological science as a whole. I write guides to help others transparently report their work and make it publicly accessible, and I coordinate international, multi-site collaborations that exemplify best practices in research.
