Ecological Sampling Methodologies

While many questions within psychological research involve the variation in behaviour within individuals between contexts, many traditional designs are insensitive to these phenomena. This stream of research examines behaviours in ecological contexts through the use of high frequency repeated measures designs.

Need for Cogniton

This research project (PhD) sought to understand the nature of individual differences in Need for Cognition. In pursuit of this aim, this project had a psychometric emphasis, involving factor analysis, scale validation, and Ecological Momentary Assessment.

Susceptibility to Misinformation

While misinformation affects society broadly, its impacts are not homogenously distributed, with some individuals being more susceptible to its effects. This program of research aims to identify the factors that make an individual susceptible or resistant to misinformation.
