Research Interests:

My research interests are broadly in the interaction between culture and mind, including comparing cognitive mechanisms in people from different social and religious backgrounds. My Ph.D. dissertation examines the relationship between values and the ability to distinguish between facts and opinions, by inquiring, Are people’s values predictive of which ideas they see as facts, and which as opinion? and what is the distraction mechanism that can explain this relationship?
