Biography

My research interests generally include the areas of attitude change and social cognition, especially factors that influence the amount and nature of information processing activity. Much of this work focuses on the biases that can be created in peoples' thoughts and perceptions and on the steps that people sometimes make in attempts to rid their thoughts and perceptions of perceived biases. Interests also include the persistence of processing outcomes over time and resistance to these outcomes to attempts at further change.
