About

My work explores the social-cognitive bases of dishonesty. How and why do people lie? Can we prevent cheating? How do people try to hide things from us, and how do we try to find them? And what sorts of strategies do people use when they are deciding if someone is deceiving them? My work shows that people have adaptive, flexible strategies for both acting dishonestly and, more controversially, also have smart and informed strategies for trying to detect others’ dishonesty. I bring a variety of methods to bear on these issues. Dynamical systems approaches and Markov modeling have informed my research into cheating behavior; body-, eye- and mouse-tracking techniques have allowed me to explore the unfolding processes of deception and its detection across time; and computational modeling has allowed me to test quantifiable predictions made by the Adaptive Lie Detector account (Street, 2015).
