Research Interests

My research focuses on economic decision-making patterns in two main groups: younger adults who participate in collision sports and healthy older adults. I am particularly interested in how we construct value and the heuristics, biases, and contexts that impact our judgments. I use behavioral and psychophysiological measures in my research. Check out my lab webpage for more information!

In addition, I research how social and digital media affect learning and attitudes toward learning in higher education. The goal of this work is to determine whether leveraging social and digital media in courses enhances digital literacy and/or encourages students to develop personal learning networks that extend beyond the course.
