Broadly speaking, my research interests fall within the domain of attitudes and persuasion. More specifically, I am engaged in several ongoing lines of research that explore how different features of voice influence attitude change. My primary line of research explores the mechanisms by which different qualities of voice that reflect speaker confidence (e.g., rate of speech, intonation, pitch) influence the success of a persuasive appeal based on the extent to which both the message source and recipient carefully process the message content. Another ongoing line of research investigates how different emotional qualities of voice (e.g., fear, excitement, boredom, contentment, etc.) impact attitude change and the mechanisms that explain why these effects occur. Further research projects focus on various aspects involved in social influence, such as scarcity, authority, and stealing thunder.
