Igor Grossmann is a world traveler: Born in the Soviet Union, he lived in Ukraine, Germany, and the U.S. Upon obtaining a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, he became an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, Canada. His main research goal is to understand the processes that enable individuals to think and act "wisely," for instance by using cognitive strategies that facilitate the resolution of social conflicts, or by adaptively regulating emotions that undermine their goals and compromise their health. To approach these issues, his work targets meaningful real world situations at the intersection of affect and cognition, ranging from daily hassles, to career choices, to romantic and societal conflicts. Grossmann’s work was published in top journals, including the PNAS, Psychological Science, Emotion and Journal of Experimental Psychology. His research has been recognized through the APA (Div. 20) Dissertation Award and the Otto Klineberg Intercultural and International Relations Award from the SPSSI. He is currently on the editorial boards of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Frontiers in Personality and Social Psychology.
