Attitudes and social cognition: I study attitudes and persuasion, the intention-behavior relation, goals, general activity patterns, prediction and change of health risk behaviors, and the effects of behavioral and clinical treatments in various settings (e.g., through meta-analysis and clinical trials). The resulting body of work concerns attitudes and social cognition broadly construed, and almost always has implications for understanding and changing behavior.

Primary Interests:

  • Attitudes and Beliefs
  • Communication, Language
  • Culture and Ethnicity
  • Health Psychology
  • Judgment and Decision Making
  • Motivation, Goal Setting
  • Neuroscience, Psychophysiology
