I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Psychological Science Department at Albion College. Ultimately, I wish to address questions about the relationship between trust, technology, and education. In particular, I am interested in how the construct of trust affects language acquisition and student learning in real world and virtual environments. To pursue this goal, I have been learning an eclectic set of methodologies to explore cognitive and educational components related to trust in technology. These methods include mental chronometry, functional neuroimaging, text analysis, verbal protocol analysis, and behavioral analysis.
