My current research focuses on four main topics: (1) the influence of "feelings" in judgment (including, for instance, being in a happy or sad mood state, or experiencing ease or difficulty when recalling some information from memory); (2) unconscious processes and intuition in judgment and decision; (3) consumer decision making, specifically the influence of choice set characteristics like the number of alternatives to choose from; and (4) ostracism, that is, being socially excluded.
