We use natural language processing techniques to examine a wide variety of psychological processes. Current projects address the following questions:
What are the strongest linguistic predictors of attitude change and persuasion?
How does language inform adaptive decision-making and expertise in police officers?
What are the language features that facilitate mutual understanding in computer-mediated communication?
How does language shape compromise and other outcomes in international relations negotiations?
Do political partisans operate in different "universes of discourse" and how does it impact compromise and understanding?
Can AI chatbots be used to enhance well-being, and if so, how?
