Visiting with Paula Niedenthal

In mid-July, I caught up with my UM social-psych graduate-school classmate Paula Niedenthal (we overlapped three years in Ann Arbor, with Paula finishing her Ph.D. in 1987 and me in 1989). Our recent meeting occurred in Madison, Wisconsin, where each of us has been visiting at the University of Wisconsin, Paula for the past year in psychology and me in Human Development and Family Studies, teaching a four-week summer course.

Paula, who has been a faculty member for several years at Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand, France, was an undergrad at Wisconsin, before moving on to Ann Arbor for grad school. To this day, she remains an enthusiastic ambassador for all things Badger-related.
