Dr. Daniel Mroczek is a professor at Northwestern University as a personality psychology professor in both the Psychology Department and School of Medicine. The purpose of the event hosted here at Wayne State University is to have Dr. Daniel Mroczek discuss his research on two primary topics: (1) lifespan personality development, including change, stability, and trajectory models of key traits and (2) the influence of personality and personality change on physical health, mortality, and other important life outcomes (e.g., income/net worth, well-being dimensions, etc.). His research has been supported by major organizations such as the National Institute on Aging. Provided his cross-disciplinary interests, his research will stimulate rich intellectual discussion on campus in terms of thinking conceptually about human health and personality, as well as encouraging attendees such as Wayne State students to remain at the forefront of scholarly research. This talk is an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge about psychology beyond course domain, become inspired about the opportunity to engage with current research/discuss findings with the actual researcher, and expand their professional network by interacting with esteemed faculty from another university.
