My research interests lie in the field of cognitive decision theory. Specifically, my program of work examines the cognitive processes that influence choices relevant to information foraging. I build and test theories that seek to explain how people perceive value in sources of information, collect information, and engage in everyday hypothesis testing. This work informs numerous lines of applied research relevant to the design and evaluation of decision support systems. These projects generally explore how modified or filtered information streams impact outcomes for decision-makers across various domains.
