PAIGE CLARKE: I am a fifth year doctoral student in the Applied Social Psychology program. My research interests are in understanding the relationship between physical activity, sports participation, and risky health behaviors. Additionally, the relationship between self-regulation and physical activity has been a consistent fascination throughout my career at GWU. My ultimate career aspirations are to use the knowledge gleaned through her research to create successful risky behavior interventions. One of my current projects tests how the legal status of marijuana impacts marijuana cognitions. Another project is designed to identify mechanisms that underlie the impact of self-affirmation on message acceptance.

STEFFI RENNINGER: I am a fourth year doctoral student in the Applied Social Psychology program. My general research interests are in examining how health communications influence or promote health behaviors, particularly physical activity and vaccination uptake. I am currently conducting a project that tests the effectiveness of a health message regarding the measles-mumps-rubella vaccination, a common childhood vaccine. I have also conducted research that investigated the effectiveness of a self-affirmation intervention to increase physical activity. My ultimate career aspirations are to apply social psychology to leverage behavior changes that will improve health.
