Most of my current (forthcoming) research focuses on psychological processes occurring in immersive virtual reality environments. Of interest are processes related to persuasion, social influence and learning.

My more established lines of work relate to social influence (deviance regulation theory, health communication, social marketing, peer influence, social comparison) and research methodology (psychological assessment, attitude measurement, ethics in science and communication). My two main areas of application relate to health and prejudice.

Primary Interests:

  • Applied Social Psychology
  • Attitudes and Beliefs
  • Communication, Language
  • Culture and Ethnicity
  • Group Processes
  • Health Psychology
  • Judgment and Decision Making
  • Persuasion, Social Influence
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
