Elicia C. Lair, Ph.D.

portrait of Elicia LairI am a Lecturer of Psychology. After completing my B.A. and M.A. in Psychology at the College of William & Mary, I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Ph.D. in Social Psychology and a concentration in Quantitative Methods in 2014.

Teaching is my primary focus at Kennesaw State University and I am passionate about providing students with interactive, hands-on learning experiences in my courses. I also conduct research and my main line of research examines affect and cognitive information processing styles. I research how these processes interact to influence a variety of judgments, decisions, and behaviors. A second line of my research explores the intersection of social cognition and clinical psychology, specifically risk, resilience, and coping.
