Broadly, I study the cognitive and affective processes that are involved in judgment and decision making. Within this area, my research focuses on two substantive problems. The first is how higher-order mental processes like simulation, memory, comparison, attention, and goals influence how we determine how pleasurable or desirable experiences were, are, or will be. This work examines their influence on basic judgments, value elicitation, decisions, and consumption behavior. My second substantive focus is how higher-order mental processes influence the attribution of thought—who or what can have a thought, who had a thought, and a thought's meaning.
