Faculty Research Interests

The goal of the Department of Psychology at George Mason University is the development and application of scientific psychology to enhance human potential through research-based practice and practice-informed research.

We support research-based practice because we want to bring our research findings into the everyday practice of psychology. We support practice-informed research because we want to attack real-world problems, not problems of interest only to other academics.

This dual focus has led our faculty to conduct research on topics ranging from what makes people happy to what keeps planes from crashing into one another. It has also led our faculty to serve on task forces, national committees (e.g., National Academy of Sciences, the Federal Aviation Administration), and advisory boards (e.g., the Air Force, the Guggenheim Foundation).

Below are our faculty's research interests. To the left, the web pages of the programs and research centers within the department have more information on research currently being conducted by our faculty.
