Broadly, I study achievement motivation and student well-being. My research looks into individual differences and social factors to understand what motivates student with a focus on educational and well-being outcomes such as test anxiety. I am also interested in taking a cross-cultural perspective to my research areas. I use both quantitative and qualitative methods in my work to address pertinent issues in education and student well-being.
