Claudia Haase is a life-span developmental psychologist. Her research program examines age-related changes as well as sources and consequences of individual differences in emotion and motivation across the life span in individuals and couples. Her work uses multiple methods (i.e., rating dials, behavioral observations, autonomic physiology, genotyping, structural neuroimaging, questionnaires), diverse study designs (e.g., experimental and longitudinal), and single-subjects as well as dyadic approaches. Much of her research has been devoted to understanding how basic paradigms and insights from affective, relationship, and motivation science can be used to understand adaptive development across the life span. More recently, she has started to apply this knowledge to examine psycho- and neuropathology across the life span, including psychopathology in adolescence and young adulthood (i.e., youth at ultra-high risk for the development of psychosis) and neurodegenerative disease in late life (i.e., Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia). Her research has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, and the Retirement Research Foundation.
