Dr. Schwab joined the Psychology Department at BSU in 2016. His research focuses on the narrative construction of identity in adolescence and adulthood, aiming to better understand how people create meaning and purpose in their lives through the stories they tell. He has published research using multiple methods to collect data (e.g., interviews, writing prompts, and surveys) on morals and values, religion and spirituality, gender development and masculinity, and the experience of emerging adulthood. Dr. Schwab teaches Developmental Psychology, Cultural Psychology, and Research Methods, and particularly enjoys collaborating with students on research projects.
