Cognitive Psychology
Research and Teaching Interests:

There is an awful lot of information in the world.  Some of it is useful; most of it is not.  How do people determine what information to use when making decisions, what is worth learning, how to search for the information they need, and what do people do when different pieces of information conflict and suggest different conclusions?  My research investigates these basic questions as well as how the answers impact real world outcomes in policy, business, and education.
