PhD Student

Photo of Isabelle Leduc-CummingsIsabelle completed her Bachelor’s degree in Honours Psychology and her M.A. in Counselling Psychology at McGill University. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Counselling Psychology at McGill University, under the supervision of Dr. Martin Drapeau and Dr. Marina Milyavskaya.

Isabelle’s principal line of research is grounded in self-determination theory, and focuses on motivation and the experience of obstacles in goal pursuit. More precisely, she investigates how autonomous vs. controlled motivation influences the subjective vs. objective experience of obstacles, and (subsequent) goal attainment. Isabelle is also interested in the self-regulatory strategies that individuals use in the process of goal pursuit when anticipating and encountering obstacles, such as situation selection.
