Research Interests

My primary research interests fall within the domain of attitude and persuasion research. These interests include the role of affect and cognition in persuasion, the causes and consequences of attitude strength, and the impact of attitude structure on susceptibility to persuasion and attitude-behavior consistency. Other research interests include the psychological mechanisms underlying social influence tactics, the impact of questionnaire design features (e.g., question order and question format) on the measurement of psychological constructs, and methodological issues in the application of statistical methods (e.g. factor analysis and structural equation modelling) to psychological research.
