I'm interested in how people access and respond to safety and health risk information. I've done research on the effectiveness of consumer product and industrial equipment warnings and I serve as a consultant in product liability litigation. I'm currently involved in several studies that examine why people ignore skin cancer warnings, and how to reduce the incidence of skin cancer through better educational campaigns. I'm also interested in how improvements in doctor-patient communication can lead to better patient health care outcomes.
