Patrick Gallagher

Research Summary:
I am interested in self-regulation as it relates to personality, decision-making, and health behavior. I am currently involved in research investigating 1) individual differences in health behavior, 2) the self-regulatory mechanisms of both variability and stability in behavior, and 3) self-regulatory influences on decision behavior.
