Cooperation is the building block of relationships – whether in wider society, in the classroom, or between a business and its customers. I use research to promote cooperation, even when achieving cooperation is quite difficult.  LinkedIn profile:

For more about the way that I apply psychology, communication, and statistics for my private sector clients, please see the Consultancy tab of this webpage.

I work with my clients to put their ideas about their customers to the test and to design brands that have the “whole customer” in mind.

I am interested not just in studying social processes but in impacting them directly, mitigating unnecessary conflict and promoting cooperation through human-centered UX and media design.
