Ted Schwaba Bio: “it’s right here and you’re reading it, guaranteed.”



I’m Ted, a PhD student in Psychology at UC Davis studying with Dr. Wiebke Bleidorn.

I study how personality develops across the lifespan and why people differ in their personality development. I’m also curious about the structure of personality and the causes and consequences of being open to experience.

I like watching baseball,  playing the drums, and doing crossword puzzles.

I plan on completing my PhD in 2021!
