Biography

Jennifer Winquist joined the Valparaiso University psychology department in 1999. She primarily teaches statistics, general psychology, and research methods. Her current research program, a collaborative effort with colleagues in Israel, investigates the role of rumination and self-focused attention in depression. In addition to her work on rumination, she has also worked with students to conduct studies on attitudes and behaviors related to environmentalism, group decision-making, and implicit attitudes toward feminists. When she’s not working, Professor Winquist and her husband, Rob Swanson (in the biology department), are busy with their young twins, Max and Moya.
