Research Associate in Education Policy, University of Colorado Boulder

My original area of expertise is social psychology, with specialty in social influence processes and social cognition. For the past many years I have been researching and writing about commercialism in education, and policy related to it. I co-author the annual report on schoolhouse commercialism for the National Education Policy Center's Commercialism in Education Research Unit, and recently published a book (with Alex Molnar) on the topic, "Sold Out: How Marketing in School Threatens Children's Well-Being and Undermines their Education."
