Under the Isaac Manasseh Meyer Fellowship, Prof Veronika Job at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany visited the SPUR lab from 17th to 24th Feb, 2019.
Veronika is a well-known expert in motivation and self-regulation. Much of her research is focused on determinants, processes, and outcomes of goal-striving and self-regulation.
Veronika Job linked ego-depletion research with the lay theory approach by showing that the way people think about acts of self-control (as consuming from a limited vs. as a non-limited resource) affects their self-regulation ability and their personal goal striving. Her work contributes to a revised, critical view of the resource model of self-control.
Thank you for joining us Veronika, we hope you had a great time here~
