Brief Description of Research Interests

Dr. Nolan is an Assistant professor of Industrial-Organizational Psychology at West Chester University.  Her work sheds light on the reasons why people are unhappy at work and how psychological theory and methods can be used to improve employee well-being. In studying predictors of employee well-being, she distinguishes between “Stable/Longer Term” predictors that are not likely to change over time (e.g., contextual factors, demands, individual differences), and “Event/Day-Level” factors that are likely to vary from day-to-day (e.g., demands, self-regulatory processes).  Her publications have appeared in leading journals such as Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Vocational Behavior, and Organizational Psychology Review.  She regularly teaches Introduction to Industrial-Organizational Psychology (undergraduate), Organizational Psychology (graduate), and Stress and Health in the Workplace (graduate). Dr. Nolan completed her B.S. in Psychology with honors from Penn State University and her Ph.D. in I-O Psychology from The University of Akron.
