Research Interests

Jenn received her bachelor of science in psychology from Georgia Southern University in 2008. She is currently in her second year at Ohio State studying social psychology with a minor in quantitative psychology. Her primary research interests include embodiment, self-validation, the determinants of attitude certainty, and the role of elaboration in self-control conflicts. In addition to her work in the attitudes and persuasion lab, she also collaborates with Dr. Kentaro Fujita on several studies related to the role of construal level theory in receptiveness to threatening health information.
