Welcome to the CALM Lab


We are a group of interdisciplinary faculty, staff, and students who are interested in better understanding the factors that influence academic success.

In the CALM lab, we use cross-sectional and experimental research methods to investigate:

  • the association between academic anxieties and academic performance
  • the influence of emotional intelligence on how students respond to sources of academic stress
  • how attitudes contribute to adaptive and maladaptive academic behaviors
  • the factors that influence individual willingness to alter prior beliefs following exposure to annulus information
  • the contribution of social media use to negative mental health outcomes
