István Tóth-Király is a Horizon Postdoctoral Research Fellow who joined the Substantive-Methodological Synergy Research Laboratory (Department of Psychology, Concordia University) in May 2019. He received his PhD in psychology at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary with a thesis focusing on the psychology of passion. Overall, his research interests lie in the intersection of social psychology, positive psychology, educational psychology, and individual differences. Substantively, he is interested in exploring the key drivers (basic psychological need fulfillment and motivations) of optimal and suboptimal functioning across various life contexts. Methodologically, he is interested in the application of advanced variable- (e.g., exploratory structural equation modeling, latent growth modeling) and person-centered (e.g., latent profile analysis, growth mixture modeling) methods within the framework of structural equation modeling. He is passionate about conducting high-quality research that could make a difference in the lives of individuals.
