Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Wyoming


My current research interests broadly focus on the interplay of motivational and cognitive processes. Our laboratory is currently focusing on defensive behaviors in a variety of contexts, particularly self-handicapping behavior and protecting group identity. In addition, our laboratory is investigating the self-regulation and self-control of health behaviors across different phases of goal pursuit. Other current areas of research interest include judgment and decision making, evolutionary psychology and law, marketing, and the role of feedback in serious games [Updated August 2017].
