Paula Hertel, Ph.D.
Professor of Pyschology, Trinity University [firstname.lastname@example.org]
I am foremost a cognitive psychologist who happens to investigate the cognitive causes, correlates, and consequences of emotional disorders. My interest in emotional disorders developed as a consequence of using depression as a special set of circumstances for testing more general principles of memory.
