My research explores how information processing influences individuals to endorse inaccurate information as truth. I focus on how psychological characteristics, such as the amount of effortful processing one uses, and message characteristics, such as the format, tone, or schematic consistency of the information, influence the way in which people process information. I utilize a variety of methods to evaluate my work, including eye tracking methodology and online experiments.
