Chris’ research interests use a multidisciplinary approach to understand the perception of foods and how this information is processed to influence reward and ultimately behavior.
My research examines how the media environment, in combination with psychological processes, influences political decision making. My approach is interdisciplinary in nature, bringing together concepts and data from behavioral, psychological, and neurobiological levels of analysis.
My background is in infant speech perception. I received my research training at Johns Hopkins University investigating infants’ segmentation of words from fluent speech and their recognition of words across different talkers.
I am interesting in sequential reasoning and judgment in communication contexts; related computational modeling; and mapping cognitive processes onto social network behavior
I am interested in music cognition, specifically in the power music holds to affect one’s emotional state. I would like to examine how the brain encodes emotional meaning through musical listening, by relating audition to higher brain functions such as emotion, memory, and perception.
