Marina Chernikova

I work with Dr. Arie Kruglanski in the Social, Decision, and Organizational Sciences (SDOS) program at the University of Maryland. My research focuses on motivated cognition, personality, self-regulation, and the psychology of terrorism. Broadly, I am interested in how individuals choose a means to a particular goal from multiple available means, as well as how they react when a means to their goal has been thwarted.
