We are excited to welcome Dan Mroczek to our department this year. Professor Mroczek’s research focuses on how personality develops and changes over a person’s lifetime, and how personality can predict success in areas such as relationships, jobs, or school, and can even predict a person’s health and mortality. He has a joint appointment with Feinberg’s Medical Social Sciences department on the Chicago campus. Professor Mroczek has ties to our department reaching back to his undergrad years at Loyola in Chicago. There he met current Northwestern Psychology Department Chair Dan McAdams, who at the time was a professor at Loyola. A Chicagoan at heart, Professor Mroczek describes himself as a Cubs fan and is excited to introduce his family to the city. His wife Jana, originally from New York City, is happy to be back in a big metro area and is looking forward to getting to know Chicago better. They have two children, Xander, age 6, and Ayla, age 4. The final member of the family is a black lab named Ruby who was originally bred to be a guide dog.
