Featured Faculty

Professor Kathleen Vohs

Over the past 15 years, Professor Kathleen Vohs has done research in the area of self-control. She studies it because she views self-control not only as one of humanity’s greatest strengths, but also as a fragile process that’s easily disrupted.

“I love [researching] self-control because I was a person who was constantly using self-control and was very aware of using it,” Vohs said. “I’m a very goal-focused individual, and so as a consequence I’m always thinking about my goals and I’m trying to change my behavior to be in-line with those goals.”
