My research is in cross-cultural, health, and social psychology. My focus is primarily on understanding why smart people do dumb things especially in the area of health. Much of my researched investigates the causes, consequences, and correlates of optimistic bias as well as other health-related behaviors and cognitions. I am currently examining cross-culturally how moralized beliefs about smoking affect risk perceptions and willingness to quit smoking.
