Research Summary

Prof. Moskowitz's research concerns patterns of behavior and affect and the relation between behavior and affect across time and situations.  She studies stability and cross-situational generality of affect and of interpersonal  behaviors (dominance, submissiveness, agreeableness, and quarrelsomeness) and examines the influence of gender, social role, and setting characteristics on interpersonal behavior and affect at home and at work and in different populations (e.g. normal and psychopathological).
