About the Blog
I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia (Go Canucks!) and after over a decade of wandering around I have settled in Chicago with my wonderful wife, Jane, and son, Benjamin. I graduated from Yale with majors in Ethics, Politics, and Economics, and Psychology, and I got my PhD in Social Psychology at Stanford working with Claude Steele and Carol Dweck. After a year of post-doctoral research at the University of Waterloo with Steve Spencer, I moved to Chicago and I am currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Behavioral Science at the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago (link to faculty page).
