Research

I study the psychology of risky health decisions, including vaccination, smoking, and medical testing.

 

My research happens in the Health Cognition & Behavior Lab. We pursue theoretical questions that have real world implications for the publicís health.

 

 

HPV vaccination

We study reasons why people get HPV vaccines and evaluate interventions to increase uptake.HPV papers and surveys.

 

Tobacco use risks

We are studying how to communicate about the risks of smoking. Tobacco papers and surveys.
