Research Interests
I am interested in studying errors in  judgment and decision making in daily life along with the evolutionary foundations in cognitive heuristics and biases. How do cognitive processes in decision making lead people to erroneous beliefs? How do perceptions of  group attitudes influence  a person's own attitudes? Can basic cognitive processes such as attention influence altruistic behavior?
