My research investigates attitude change and the formation of attitudes, especially about science and morality. I'm particularly interested in how people explain the world around them and how they generate arguments (e.g., how they produce arguments to support their views). I address these issues using a range of methods including behavioral studies with adults and children, data mining and machine learning techniques, surveys of experts, and Bayesian statistical modeling. I also maintain an interest in advising students working at the intersection of psychology and philosophy.
