Dr Elise Kalokerinos
ARC Decra Fellow
School of Psychology
Elise Kalokerinos is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Psychology, University of Newcastle. Her research primarily investigates emotion regulation, which is the variety of processes through which people influence their emotion. She investigates how factors like context, timing, and goals shape which strategies people use to regulate their emotions, and the consequences of those strategies in both the short term (in shaping both emotional and non-emotional outcomes) and in the long term (in shaping psychological well-being and maladjustment). Her work uses multiple methods, including both traditional laboratory experiments and experience sampling methods using smartphones to understand processes in the real world. She also has a second line of research in which she investigates the effects of stereotypes on traditionally disadvantaged groups in the workplace.
Elise completed her PhD in social psychology at the University of Queensland in June 2014, and from October 2014 – February 2018, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Research Group of Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences at KU Leuven in Belgium. From 2016 – 2018 she was supported by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship from the European Union.

© 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. The chapter describes six prominent measures of coping that are broken into two categories covering (1) trait coping and (2) state coping. The measures reviewed are The Miller Behavioral Style Scale (Miller, 1987); The Mainz Coping Inventory (Krohne, 1993); The Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations (Endler & Parker, 1990, 1994); The COPE Inventory (Carver et al., 1989); The Coping Strategy Indicator (Amirkhan, 1990); and The Ways of Coping Questionnaire (Folkman & Lazarus, 1988). The chapter reviews antecedents and triggers of coping, and theoretical distinctions (or 'frameworks') in coping research. Challenges and future directions in coping research are discussed.

© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Research has shown that people who express positive emotion following victory risk appearing unlikeable and inconsiderate. We investigated whether these relational costs might be offset by status benefits, and the processes underlying such benefits. Across eight experiments (N = 1456), we found that winners who expressed positive emotion were perceived as higher in social standing than winners who suppressed positive emotion. To understand the mechanisms underlying this effect, we manipulated factors to do with the situation in which emotion was expressed, the type of person expressing emotion, and the way emotion was expressed. We also conducted replications of these experiments. The only factor that consistently moderated the expressivity effect was perceived authenticity, such that expressive winners only gained status benefits when observers believed the emotion expression was authentic. The findings point to the power of context in shaping the nature of the social benefits reaped by expressing positive emotion.

© 2018 John Wiley & Sons Ltd As in many areas of psychological inquiry, context matters for how emotion is experienced, expressed, perceived, and regulated. While this may sound like a truism, emotion research does not always directly theorize, manipulate, or measure emotion with context in mind. To facilitate this process, we present a framework of contextual features that shape emotion-related processes, and highlight several key factors that have been shown to matter in emotion research. We make four recommendations which we believe will help to better integrate context in emotion science. We argue that a deeper collective understanding, interrogation, and integration of context will propel the field forward theoretically and methodologically, and enhance researchers' ability to probe the mechanisms of human psychological experience. While our focus is on emotion research, we believe that the context framework and associated recommendations will also be useful to other fields of social psychological and personality science.

© The Authors 2015. This study investigates interest in, and factors associated with, bridge employment and phased retirement. A survey of 609 older employees undertaken in 2010 at a large, diverse organization in Australia revealed that job attitudes were differentially linked to interest in these retirement options, with moderately high levels of interest in working following retirement. Job attitudes were positively associated with interest in same-organization bridge employment, but job satisfaction was negatively associated with interest in phased retirement within the current organization. When the attitudinal variables were examined simultaneously for bridge employment, job involvement was the only unique predictor. These findings suggest that job attitudes play an important role in an individual's openness to extending employment within the same organization beyond retirement, and suggest that organizations should consider implementing interventions that target job attitudes as a method to retain older employees.
