MPA Presidential Invited Addresses
Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan
Ethan Kross explores how people can control their emotions to improve our understanding of how self-control works and to discover ways of enhancing self-control in daily life. He and his lab adopt an integrative approach to address these issues that draws on multiple disciplines within psychology including social, personality, clinical, developmental, and neuroscience. Those areas are integrated in terms of the types of questions asked, the methods used to address them, and the populations examined.
