I am conducting three lines of research. The first investigates how psychological distance (temporal distance, spatial distance, social distance, and hypotheticality) influences the representations of objects and, thereby, the predictions, evaluations, and choice individuals make regarding those objects. The second line of research investigates self control processes, namely, how individual resolve conflicts between their long-term, global, concerns and their short-term local concerns. The third line of research distinguishes between analytic and associative thinking and examines the role of affective states and personal desires on social judgment and decision making.
