David is a second year graduate student, researching the automatic, nonconscious strategies people employ to facilitate positive social outcomes during one-on-one interactions. His current work explores 1) whether people strategically regulate their commitment to moral standards to increase the likelihood that they will laugh at others’ jokes, 2) what processes lead to the mirroring of others’ speech patterns, and 3) what motives underlie the rapid adoption of others’ implicit attitudes (a process known as social tuning).
