Associate Professor, Department of Psychology

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 7490

Milyavskaya is available to discuss goal setting and New Year’s resolutions.

Milyavskaya’s research examines why people are successful in the pursuit of certain goals, but not others. Her work looks at the factors that promote successful goal pursuit and attainment, as well as self-regulatory mechanisms. Her other research interests include autonomy support, health behaviours, attachment and well-being across a person’s lifespan.

Milyavskaya is available for English and French interviews.

Jim Davies
Professor, Institute of Cognitive Science and School of Computer Science

Phone: 613-520-2600, ext. 1109

Davies is available to discuss willpower and New Year’s resolutions.

As director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory, Davies explores computational modelling and artificial intelligence applied to human visual imagination. His work has shown how people use visual thinking to solve problems and how they visualize imagined situations and worlds. He is a frequent contributor to Nautilus magazine and is author of Riveted: The Science of How Jokes Make Us Laugh, Movies Make Us Cry, and Religion Makes Us Feel One with the Universe. He is co-host of the award-winning Minding the Brain podcast.
