Carolyn C. Morf, PhD (University of Utah, 1994), is on the faculty of the Institute of Psychology at the University of Bern, Switzerland. Her research focuses on understanding self-regulatory processes--both intrapersonal and interpersonal--through which individuals construct and maintain their desired psychological identities and conceptions of themselves. Her work is at the interface of self and personality research, in that she has been studying these processes in individuals who are high in narcissism. Recent publications include a target article on a self-regulatory model of narcissism in Psychological Inquiry (2001, with Frederick Rhodewalt) and a keynote chapter on the self in the Handbook of Self and Identity (2003, with Walter Mischel). Dr. Morf's previous appointment was at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), where she was in charge of the Personality and Social Cognition Program in the Division of Neuroscience and Basic Behavioral Science. In this role, she worked with researchers in developing their grant application ideas, made funding decisions, and promoted understudied and/or newly emerging areas of research through a variety of initiatives. She also has a long history of teaching beginning and advanced statistics and methods courses for graduate and undergraduate students at both the University of Utah and the University of Toronto (where she was on the faculty prior to joining NIMH), and has served on several editorial boards of psychological journals (including Psychological Review and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology). In addition, she has worked on a regular basis as a methodological and statistical consultant for a range of governmental and private organizations.
