About the Lab

The Attitudes and Social Cognition Lab is part of the Department of Psychology and Communication Studies Program at Iowa State University.  Much of the lab members' research interests revolve around the formation and change of attitudes in a variety of social contexts, including social policies, health communication, and stereotyping and prejudice.

My research focuses on three primary areas in attitudes and social cognition:
(1) the role one's values play in the formation and strength-related consequences of one's attitudes
(2) the possible contributions of attitude theory in judgment and decision-making, particularly in understanding numerical anchoring effects
(3) and the effects of characteristics of persuasive messages on attitude structure and change.
