Research Interests

My research splinters into two areas. My primary research area concerns intuition-based performance. Within this field I study how factors such as analytical mindsets, confidence, or affect alter one's ability to rely on intuition. My second area of research concerns police interrogations and false confessions. Specifically, I research how the ability of an observer to notice coercive techniques is moderated through different camera perspectives or perseverance effects.
