Teaching materials for my class, The Surprising Psychology of Everyday Life, are available here.
I'm currently a PhD student in psychology at Harvard University, working with Dan Gilbert. We're trying to figure out:
- Do people know when someone else wants to stop talking to them?
- Why do people think the world has gotten worse over time?
- Do people know how norms have changed over time?
Get in touch with me if you have thoughts on any of those.
This is a directory of my current and past collaborators.
And here's a few things I've written:
