The ongoing research in my lab focuses on personality (e.g., dispositional humility), the psychology of religion (e.g., religion, prejudice, morality), positive psychology, and personal relationships. I currently have a research grant to study intellectual humility (2013-15). I really enjoy mentoring and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses (e.g., social psychology, personality, psychology of religion, advanced research methods). Beyond the classroom and lab, Dr. Rowatt serves as IRB Vice-Chair, on a few editorial boards, and enjoys running.
