Conspiracy Belief
I am interested in how context predicts conspiracy belief. My current projects include:

1. How the political beliefs of the people in your surroundings predict how likely you are to believe conspiracy theories, and which theories you believe.
2. How cultural differences predict variation in conspiracy belief.
3. How distance from frightening events predicts conspiracy belief about those events.
4. Using machine learning to identify conspiratorial language in text.

I am also interested in how conspiracy theories spread through social media.

I am interested in the status of social psychology, and predictors of best practices in social science research. My current projects include:

1. How institutional prestige predicts sample size.

Previously published projects I have been a part of include:

1. The state of social and personality psychology.
2. Why some researchers do not adopt best practices.
