My Research

My students and I are endeavouring to measure aspects of everyday thought, including the nature and frequency of off-task thought. Our lab follows open science practices (https://osf.io/), I am a signatory of the Openness Initiative (https://opennessinitiative.org/), and I am a member of the Society for Descriptive Psychology (http://www.sdp.org/).
