My larger research interests lie in understanding the human judgments that shape decision-making. My broader aim is to apply this knowledge to the design of effective communications, decision aids, and interventions that will assist people in making more informed choices.

I use both basic and applied research methods to examine questions in areas ranging from health decision-making to consumer behavior with respect to energy consumption and conservation.
