The overarching theme of research conducted in the co-laboratory is to apply contemporary theorizing from multiple domains of psychology for the purpose of better understanding, predicting, and enhancing behavior and well-being in achievement (training, school) and work settings.


The PARK lab has existed for over 20 years. The co-laboratory serves as a center for graduate
training and integrative research that spans cognitive, aging, personality, social,
and applied psychology domains.
