I am currently a post-doc research associate at Kingston
University, working on research in vaccination decisions and
vaccination advocacy. Previously, as a post-doc at King's College
London, I investigated acceptability of (and objections to) financial
incentives in health contexts. I obtained my Ph.D. in Psychology
(decision making) at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, working
with Jonathan Baron on patient acceptance of computerized decision
aids, and how people think about preference change brought about by
public policy or changes in the environment.
