I am currently an assistant professor in Applied Psychology Program at Human and Environmental Systems Department, Arizona State University. 
My main research interests encompass embodied cognition, fluency and affect, judgmental biases, multi-modal integration, and anthropomorphismI have studied how various human judgments and perceptions such as risk perception, effort perception, trend prediction, and color perception can be biased by incidental factors such as ease of information processing and physical sensations. I am further interested in anthropomorphism, people's tendency to see humanness in various entities including robots, animals, and embryos as well as affective/cognitive mechanisms underlying this phenomena.
