Through my writing, I try to teach about scientific psychology. When I write for a general audience, I use fictional characters to illustrate psychological concepts and research findings. I also have a number of blogs in which I do the same thing.
I also write college-level textbooks as well as journal articles about research. With the textbooks, I try to help students learn the material in an interesting and informative way so that they'll be likely to apply it to their lives. With the research, I hope to learn more about how we can be "nudged" to be more helpful in our daily lives.
My blog, Psychblog, includes original essays as well as my essays published on other websites.
