Lahnna is a graduate student in Social Psychology,
working towards a departmental minor in Quantitative Psychology. Most of the research questions she finds intriguing are linked
to the study of well-being. How do the optimally functioning live their lives differently on a daily basis?
What resources or practices allow people to deal effectively with life's stressors or maximize life's successes?
Lahnna is also interested in the intersection of culture and well-being.
How does our culture cultivate or prevent optimal functioning among its members?
And what is the architecture of well-being in other cultures (defined regionally, nationally, etc.)?
Beyond these questions, Lahnna is interested in the connection between social relationships and well-being,
interventions to promote positive emotions, and the use of experience sampling techniques.
Lahnna completed her master's degree in General Experimental Psychology at Wake Forest University in 2006.
