If you are interested in gaining research experience in the area of social influence, please contact me. I am always looking for excellent research assistants, that is, those who are energetic, detail-oriented, conscientious, able to work well alone and with others, and interested in the subject matter. The social influence lab meets as a group weekly throughout the academic year. At these meetings we plan the week’s research activities, discuss ideas for future studies and look at data analyses.
