RESEARCH INTERESTS & EXPERTISE
- Persuasion (e.g., What makes a message, advertisement, or recommendation persuasive? How can we best convince ourselves to act on our beliefs?)
- Word of Mouth (e.g., What gets people talking about news articles, videos, consumer product? When and why do people try to convince you to see their perspective?)
- Metacognition (e.g., How do our thoughts about our thoughts influence our evaluations and behaviors? How do we use our emotions to inform our actions and opinions?)
- Morality (e.g., How do our beliefs about what is or isn’t ethical influence our decision-making? How do we perceive others’ moral opinions and actions?)
