I am a T32 postdoctoral research fellow in the Wisconsin Training Program in Emotion Research at the University of Wisconsin Madison. In my research, I describe and predict goal pursuit outcomes in daily life, with a particular interest in when and why people give up. In graduate school, my work focused on personal goal pursuits (like New Year's Resolutions) in American adults. My current work focuses on abstinence goals among American adults with substance use disorder.
I advocate for and support others in adopting practices that support transparent, rigorous, generalizable, and openly accessible science. I am an Assistant Director at the Psychological Science Accelerator, an international network of psychological scientists that conducts large-scale collaborative research, and a member of the executive committee of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science, a professional society committed to improving methods and practices in psychological science.
My last name is Moshontz de la Rocha, which is a combination of my parents' last names. I publish under the name Hannah Moshontz and tend to go by this shortened version professionally.
