My research interests focus on the situated,embodied, and constructive nature of human judgment, broadly conceived, including the interplay of feeling and thinking, the role of conversational processes in reasoning, and the cognitive and communicative underpinnings of self-reports of attitudes and behaviors. I address these conceptual issues in different content domains, including public opinion, consumer behavior, and well-being. A more detailed description and selected papers are available on my home page.
