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.
