Martin Lynch, a clinical psychologist, joined the Warner School faculty in 2008, teaching in the counseling and counselor education programs. His research focuses on the effects of social context on human motivation, personality development, and well being. His current research interests include cross-cultural issues in the role of autonomy support; the sources of within-person variability in trait self-concept, well-being, and life satisfaction; motivation for emigration; and adjustment of international students. He is also involved in applied motivational research in the domains of health care, education, work, and psychotherapy. Additionally, Lynch is a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in New York State.

Lynch returned to the University of Rochester after teaching at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee for four years. A former Scandling Scholar at the Warner School, Lynch completed his graduate work at the University in clinical psychology.

Lynch, who is fluent in Russian and has lived and worked in Russia, brings a unique perspective to cross-cultural studies and the understanding of intercultural relations and experiences. He publishes in both western and Russian journals.
