How can we make accurate information more desirable?
Why do we tend to prefer information that supports our existing beliefs?How can we limit the spread of misinformation and disinformation online?
I’m a postdoctoral-researcher at the Zuckerman Institute, Columbia University studying the contextual factors and characteristics of information that drive us to seek it.
These are examples of the type of questions that guide my research interests. I combine experimental design from cognitive psychology with computational modelling to address these questions.
