I work at the intersection of psychology, behavioral economics, and cognitive neuroscience, applying theoretical frameworks drawn from these fields to contemporary and historical case studies in business, politics, and other life areas. My specific research is on truth-seeking, effective decision-making, emotional and social intelligence, and meaning and purpose. I published two academic books and over 25 peer-reviewed essays in journals and edited volumes in the United States, England, France, Germany, and Russia. I serve as an Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University in the History Department and the Decision Sciences Collaborative. For a copy of my CV, click here.
