*** About the Speaker ***

Dr. Earl received her BA in Anthropology and BS in Psychology from the University of Florida, and her PhD in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Michigan, and the director of the University of Michigan Health, Attitudes, and Influence Lab (HAILab). Dr. Earl is also a Faculty Associate at the University of Michigan’s Research Center for Group Dynamics, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Joint Program in Social Work and Psychology and the Department of Communications Studies.

The overarching goal of Dr. Earl’s research program is to better understand what we pay attention to and why, and how to best use this knowledge to increase attention to health promotion programs, particularly for high-risk audiences. She uses a variety of methodologies to address these questions, including experimental work, survey, unobtrusive observation, meta-analysis, and psychophysiological methods (e.g., Event-Related Potentials).
