Igor Grossmann received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and is now an Assistant Professor in Social Psychology at the University of Waterloo, Canada. His research interests revolve around two issues. His main scientific 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. His second goal is to understand how culture shapes affective processes and reasoning, given the mutual constitution of culture and the mind.

In order to approach both of 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. He currently explores how age, psychological distance, and social orientation influence emotion regulation, reasoning, well-being, and wisdom, integrating these processes in a broad sociocultural context.
