My research explores the interplay between emotion, cognition, and consciousness. My primary line examines the operation of basic affective reactions, such as those elicted by emotional facial expressions. A related line concerns cognitive "feelings", such as the experience of processsing fluency and the experience of recall effort. I am also interested in how categorization changes the impact of cognitively accessible information on judgment. While pursuing all these issues, I employ a variety of methodologies: from standard methods of social and cognitive psychology to methods of psychophysiology and neuroscience.
