Welcome to Joanne Earl’s Psychology research lab. Our lab focuses on answering important applied research questions with the assistance of the community. Our main area of research focus is retirement planning and adjustment. We are interested in defining what successful retirement looks like and identifying some of the main factors that help to contribute. We are also currently investigating whether aging affects financial decision making and how. Some of our research is survey based, some are experimental and others are intervention based. Participants can assist by completing surveys, participating in experiments or completing our training programs. If you are interested in reading about research you can access our journal articles from publications.
