About me

My name is Kate Petrova. My research focuses on questions at the intersection of affective science and social psychology. I work on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, and I will be starting my Ph.D. in Psychology at Stanford University in Fall 2021.

I study the roles of attention in emotion generation and emotion regulation. My other interests include interpersonal emotion regulation, emotion perception in digitally mediated communication, and the roles of emotions in social decision-making.
