My main current research interests are:
(1) attitudes about risk and risk communication (processing of messages about health, warnings about future risk, etc.);
(2) self-regulation and performance (effects of self-efficacy, habits, control motivation, trust, stereotypes, expertise, etc.);
(3) sensory processes as antecedents and consequences of attitudes and decision making in natural settings.

With my graduate students, I am working both in lab and field settings (public health, driving and transportation, consumer decision making, food industry, energy saving). I especially like theory-driven research in applied fields.

I have also a general interest in research methods in social psychology and applied experimental psychology.
