My primary research interest is in computational models of social reasoning and social behavior.
I am working with Lynn Miller of the Annenberg School of Communication and several graduate students (Vita Droutman and Gurveen Chopra) to develop a neural network model of personality, based on work on temperament, the Big Five, and the neurobiology of motivation.
With Dan Simon, of the USC Law School, and Doug Stenstrom of CSLA, I am working on connectionist models of Legal and Everyday Decision Making.
Phil Ehret and I are working on a neural network model of Wil Cunningham's Iterative Reprocessing Model of Social Evaluation.
Jennifer Talevich and I are working on a neural network model of Adult Attachment processes.
With Brian Monroe and Vita Droutman I am working on a neural network model of Cognitive Dissonance.
