Biography

Liz Stine-Morrow received her Ph.D. in general/experiment psychology from Georgia Tech in 1983, and was postdoctoral researcher at Duke University (1983-84) and Brandeis University (1984-1990).  She was on the faculty in the Department of Psychology at the University of New Hampshire prior to coming to the University of Illinois in 2002. She is currently a professor of Educational Psychology with appointments in Psychology and at the Beckman Institute.

Research

Professor Stine-Morrow’s research is broadly concerned with the multifaceted nature of adult development and aging, and in particular, how cognition and intellectual capacities are optimized over the adult life span.  She has examined how self-regulated adaptations (e.g., selective allocation of attentional resources, reliance on knowledge-based processes, activity engagement) engender positive development in adulthood. Much of this research has focused on the important role of literacy and the processes through which effective reading is maintained into late life. This research has been funded by the National Institute on Aging, the National Science Foundation, and the Institute for Educational Sciences. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the Gerontological Society of America. Awards include the College of Education Spitze-Mather Award for Faculty Excellence and the Department of Educational Psychology Jones Teaching Award. Professor Stine-Morrow has served as president of Division 20 of the American Psychological Association, as associate editor for The Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences and Memory & Cognition, and as a member of the National Research Council’s Committee on Adolescent and Adult Literacy (2009-2011). She currently serves as associate editor for Psychology and Aging.
