Jessica Alquist


Jessica received her PhD in Social Psychology from (the) Florida State University working with Roy Baumeister and Dianne Tice. She received her undergraduate education at Drew University in New Jersey.

Although she finds most social psychological research pretty irresistible, she focuses her research primarily on the limited resource model of self-control and the effects of beliefs about agency on behavior.
