My research centers on science and risk communication with a specific focus on persuasion, information processing, and motivated reasoning. Recent work of mine explores how diverse audiences process and react to messages on polarizing and controversial science and risk topics, including genetically modified foods, self-driving cars, climate change, nuclear power, and vaccination.
