My name is Kayla Marie Garner, and I am a 3rd year PhD student in Personality, Development, and Health Psychology as well as an ad hoc Master of Science in Statistics student at at Northwestern University (NU). I work in the Personality, Motivatation, and Cognition Lab (https://personality-project.org/pmc.html) at NU with Dr. William Revelle and am doing research with the Synthetic Aperture Personality Assessment (SAPA) project (https://www.sapa-project.org). I also work in the Lifespan Personality and Health Lab with Dr. Daniel Mroczek. My research and academic interests broadly involve geographical psychology, person-environment fit, personality traits, psychometrics, and pro-environmentalism. I am highly interested in the dynamic and transactional relationship between people and their geographical environments, as well as how and why personality effects vary across places.
