Gerald L. Clore, Commonwealth Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia, studies the influence of emotion on thought and judgment. He formerly taught at the University of Illinois. He has been Associate Editor of Cognition and Emotion (1988-1996), and a faculty member in the NIMH Postdoctoral Training Consortium on Emotion (U-C Berkeley, 1991-1996; U Wisconsin, 1997-1999).
He has held visiting appointments at Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, and New York University, an NIMH Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University (1980), at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (1996-97), and at the Rockefeller Study Center in Bellagio Italy (2003).
Books include The Cognitive Structure of Emotion (Cambridge, 1988) and Theories of Mood and Cognition (Erlbaum, 2001). His research on cognition and emotion generally and on the affective regulation of judgment, thought, and memory in particular has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Mental health.
