I conduct research on a variety of topics at the intersection of cognitive, cultural, developmental, environmental, and social psychology. Click here to learn more about my most recent research. Or visit my Google Scholar page for links to all of the published articles.
In Fall 2016, I am on sabbatical leave…see you in January!
In Spring 2017, I am teaching a Tuesday/Thursday 4:20 course on Statistics for Social Sciences. Here is the good news – we will be using a free online textbook and program so you can save your money for better things (although a stats textbook is not a bad financial decision). Here is the free textbook we will use: http://vassarstats.net/textbook/
Also I am teaching a 1 PM Friday special topics course on how we know things, built around themes raised in Carl Sagan’s 1979 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. In it we read a lot of Walt Whitman’s poetry, who lived his final years and died just a few blocks from the Rutgers-Camden campus. See Psychology of the Cosmos for an older, outdated syllabus to get a sense for some of what we do in the class.
