Researching self-knowledge, introspection and ideological preferences (politics, moral, relgion).
About the research
Although it feels like it, a lot of our political views are not stored in our brains, but constructed in the moment based on the context (through inferential processes). To learn more about how these processes work, I study how political attitudes, behavior, and cognition, are influenced by various external feedback. To get as much as possible out of our data, the experiments are conducted in the streets, in the lab, and on large-scale web platforms. My broader aim is to find effective ways to measure public opinion, predict outcomes, and design cogent democratic systems.
