My research interests fall into three main areas related to social-cultural psychology. The first deals with the impact of people’s day-to-day emotional experiences (i.e., emotions, moods) on social judgments, attitudes and persuasion. My second area of interest focuses on examining the cultural basis of affective judgments such as subjective well-being. I have conducted cultural psychology work in the countries of Tonga and Oman to investigate these questions. My third area of interest is conducting applied social psychology research. For example, I have conducted research examining the role of attention/memory processes in survey responses and political decision-making as well as research examining the determinants of peoples' environmental attitudes.

I have also recently begun research with my colleagues into the psychology of teaching, with a focus on understanding the processes that lead to effective directed studies outcomes in undergraduate psychology courses. An emerging area of research that my students and I have begun is a project that explores the dimensions underlying nonreligion and secularity (i.e., rejecting, questioning, or absence of religion).
