Major Areas of Interest
- Behavioral assessment
- Impact of cognition and personality variables on motivation and performance
- Employee development
Current research is focused on the influence of trait and state
motivational variables as related to coping, wellbeing, and health
indicators for people living with chronic illness (i.e., chronic
hepatitis C; HCV). In addition to quantitative methods and analyses,
qualitative methods are used to focus on gaining insight into the
experience of living with HCV. Issues related to social support, support
at work, employment issues and the meaning attached to work for
participants in the study are of interest. Cellar is also the
co-director of the Center for Community and Organization Development.
