Jessie Joyce Portrait

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Psychology Department at Syracuse University. This means my primary focus is on teaching! 

In my research, I take a social cognitive approach to investigate patterns in the autobiographical narratives people recall following threats to their self-esteem. This work is set within a larger mission to study how people change the way they recall the past to serve self-enhancement goals, with a specific interest in changes to levels of construal.
