Research Statement

My research investigates a variety of topics, approached largely from the standpoint of psychological research on human judgment and decision making. My empirical research includes explicating the foundations of trust and distrust within organizations, as well as the related question of the determinants of cooperation and conflict. I also study presidential judgment and decision making, as well decision making in other interesting and important real world contexts, including the entertainment industry, U.S. intelligence agencies, the Oval Office, and medical settings. I have done research also on self-defeating forms of behavior, including dysfunctional negotiation behavior and leader behavior. Finally, I study the antecedents and consequences of social and organizational identities.
