I’m a PhD candidate in social psychology at University of Minnesota. I study behavior change and persistence. Much of my research lies at the interface of theory and practice. I attempt to embed psychological theory into behavior change strategies, programs, or interventions (often in a health-related context) with the dual purpose of testing theory and helping people make changes they desire. There is much to be gained from a deeper understanding of the active psychological ingredients that produce desired (lasting) changes.
On this blog I write about social/health psychology, research methodology, meta-science, open science, and other candid thoughts of the moment.
