Timothy Reilly is a developmental psychologist whose work draws from a variety of approaches, including positive psychology, moral development, sociocultural theory, and action theories of development. His previous work has emphasized positive development in adolescence and young adulthood. His current research examines interventions to enhance psychological well-being, college student development, moral identity, the role of practices in self development and virtue development. His work on the Developing Virtues in the Practice of Science project includes conducting international surveys and interview studies of scientists and musicians. This work aims to better articulate how virtue is understood in particular practices and to develop a psychological conception of vocation through which to understand virtue.
