About me & my work:

I study human judgment and decision-making: why we do, say, feel, and think what we do, and how the world we inhabit shapes those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Most recently I've been trying to understand why we spend so much time in front of screens--phones, tablets, computers, TVs--and how screen time changes how we experience the world (for better and worse).
