I am interested broadly in how people become, and stay, misinformed. Specifically, I'm interested in the role of belief confidence and humor as causes of, and solutions to, misinformation. I use a variety of methods to test my claims, including panel data, eye-tracking experiments, and online experiments. For more information about my interests and work, visit my website at
