About me

Social psychology, for me, begins with recognizing that people and groups have different perspectives. Key questions include: How do we bridge these divergences of perspective and achieve our collective life? What can we learn from listening to each other? And, more pragmatically, what technologies can we develop to study and intervene in these interactions? I use a range of quantitative and qualitative methods from laboratory studies to fieldwork.
