Activities and researches

Clara Amato

Post-Doctoral Fellow,

Affiliation: Department of Social & Developmental Psychology - University of Rome, “Sapienza”

Her research interests focus on understanding motivational processes. Given that motivation is the underpinning factor of every action and it constitutes a pervasive construct in social psychology, her research interests extend over a wide range of areas including self-regulation, epistemic motivations, cognitive biases, entrepreneurial intention and attitudes towards entrepreneurial initiatives, subjective experiences of time, principles of compliance with social power and leadership-followers’ interactions.

Her current work seeks to understand how self-regulation and motivated social cognition work in various domains of real-life (i.e., economic, organizational, entrepreneurial, gender stereotypes in leadership). Additionally, her research examines the relationship between regulatory mode and time perception, by exploring how we can value time as precious as it is and how to use it effectively.

The relevance of these topics has led her to collaborate with several international teams of research and with world-renowned professors, such as Arie W. Kruglanski, from University of Maryland; Robert Baron, from University of Oklahoma; Antonio Pierro from University of Rome.

She earned her master’s degree and doctorate in Social and Organizational Psychology from the University of Rome, LUMSA.
