This research lab has received funding from grants from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Qualcomm, and the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI).  

The research in this lab focuses on several topics.  First, our research examines relationships among Type A subcomponents, stressors, strains, and work outcomes and also investigates similarities and differences in these variables across various demographic groups.  This project builds on and extends research on time urgency and other Type A behavior pattern (TABP) subcomponents, some of which is listed below.  Second, our research examines personality and other individual difference characteristics as predictors of a variety workplace outcomes.
