I'm a social psychologist with many areas of interest. I've been particularly active in digital marketing via big data (SQL, Java, Python, R, & Hadoop), motivation and emotion research, and behavioral economics. I've also focused research on issues of planning for older age including retirement income and assets, as well as planning for the possibility of needing long-term services and supports. I was the first research supplier ever named Marketing Researcher of the Year by PMRG. My work was recently recognized by Fast Company's Top 10 Most Innovative Award. I am also a Fellow of the Employee Benefit Research Institute
