Dr. Brown is a social-personality psychologist. Her research explores how aspects of the self and our social and emotional experiences influence behavior. For example, she studies how self-concept structure moderates a number of basic psychological processes, such as memory and self-regulation. She also adopts an evolutionary psychology approach in her research on how people respond to social acceptance and rejection.
