Area of Specialization Dr. Rosa’s research follows three areas of interest: aging, learning, and disability. Her aging work has focused on factors that contribute to healthier aging and tools that may protect or aid memory as we age. Dr. Rosa has explored the role of self and others in memory across the lifespan. She is also interested in other tools that aid in the process of learning and remembering new information both in and out of the classroom. Lastly, Dr. Rosa’s work in disability studies has examined attitudes toward disability and the ways in which disability education is included in Psychology.
