She also holds an adjunct faculty position in the Department of Aging & Geriatric Research and is affiliated with the Institute on Aging, the McKnight Brain Institute, as well as the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity Research. Her research program focuses on examining the extent to which emotional (e.g., faces displaying different emotion expressions, positive and negative personality traits) and self-relevant information (e.g., related to one’s own age, personal goals and agendas, age stereotypes) affect attention, decision making, and memory, how these effects change across the adult lifespan, and what the consequences are for emotion regulation, health, and well-being. Dr. Ebner has undergraduate researchers working in her lab on these studies. 

In addition to the work listed above, in the past 10 years, Dr. Ebner has mentored 13 University Scholars and 1 Emerging Scholar.  Her dedication and commitment to CUR’s mission and undergraduate research is evident by her continued support.
