“The Department of Psychology is extremely fortunate to count among its faculty the recipients of both the Distinguished Lifetime Career Award and the Outstanding Early Career Award from a prestigious international society. For me personally, it is a pleasure to see two of my colleagues recognized for their outstanding scientific contributions to the field,” said Dr. Bruce Carlson, Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology at Ohio University.

Rios is Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of Experimental Training at Ohio University. The Outstanding Early Career Award is made annually to recognize and encourage a distinguished junior scientist who has made outstanding theoretical and empirical contributions to the scientific study of self and identity.

Rios was presented a plaque and gave a distinguished address at the 2019 SPSP Self and Identity Pre-Conference.

“The International Society for Self and Identity is a scholarly association dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the human self. The Society members come from all over the globe, representing many different academic and professional disciplines. The members of ISSI share an interest in cognitive, emotional, and behavioral processes related to the self-system. These include the ability for people to think consciously about themselves, to form images and concepts of what they are like, to evaluate their characteristics and capabilities, to plan deliberately for the future, to worry about how they are being perceived by others, and to direct their own behavior in line with personal standards. Because this ability to self-reflect has important implications for understanding behavior, the self has emerged as a central focus of theory and research in many domains of social and behavioral science,” according to its website.
