Thanks to Applied Social Psychology Ph.D. ('97) alum, Dr. Jamie Goldenberg, for sharing her research with us today at the Department's Colloquium! She spoke to us about her research program focusing on applying Terror Management Theory to behavior health decisions. Jamie also got to catch up with her dissertation advisor, Dr. Carol Sigelman! Jamie is currently a Professor of Psychology at the University of South Florida.
