I am a social psychologist whose research examines (1) how nonconscious and conscious feelings and beliefs affect judgment and behavior, (2) how self-knowledge influences emotions, goals, and actions, and (3) the psychology of pet ownership, with this research supported over the years by National Institute of Mental Health and National Science Foundation grants.
My service includes Editor in Chief of Social Psychological and Personality Science, Associate Editor of Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, member of the National Science Foundation social psychology grant panel, and conference organizer for the SPSP Social Cognition Preconference.
My recognitions include being named the James and Beth Lewis Endowed Professor, University Distinguished Scholar, and Professor of the Year in Psychology. I teach courses in social psychology, social cognition, attitudes, nonconscious behavior, the self, judgment and decision making, and intergroup relations at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Finally, my expertise has been applied to consumer behavior and to legal and trial consulting, and my scholarship has been presented in a number of legal venues, including in briefs argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.
