Hannah Giasson

Hannah Giasson’s research considers the complex interplay between individual and societal expectations, attitudes, and beliefs about aging and individuals’ social, motivational, and affective experiences as they become older. In particular, her work seeks to understand how attitudes about aging shape people's decisions about how to spend their time each day, and their feelings about themselves as they pass through different life transitions. 
 
Her research aims to shed light on the interacting social-contextual and socioemotional factors that contribute to well-being in late life.
 
Hannah received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Michigan where she was a Fellow at the International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course (LIFE). She earned her B.A. in Psychology from Bates College.
