PhD Social Psychologist
I conduct theoretically sophisticated research on meaningful real-world problems to both expand our theoretical knowledge of cognition and behavior as well as enhance our abilities to address such problems. My research incorporates both quantitative laboratory and field studies, addressing sustainability, health, and education related problems.
