My research explores how people make sense of the world in which they live and how their decisions are shaped by subtle contextual influences. My theoretical approach emphasizes the socially situated and embodied nature of cognition and the role of feelings and subjective experiences in judgment and decision making. I pursue these basic processes in different domains, including public opinion, consumer behavior, well-being, and the psychology of self-report.
