I direct research and design at Stanford University's Persuasive Technology Lab. Our purpose is to create insight into how computing products--from websites to mobile phone software--can be designed to change people's beliefs and behaviors. I started investigating computers and persuasion in 1993 and later realized this topic had no name, so I gave it one: captology.

In industry I help good organizations use tech and new media to influence people. In general, I leverage what I learn at Stanford to achieve client goals in industry. It's a great time to be a psychologist who investigates how tech persuades people. You can see my innovation page for topics of expertise. I like to speak and teach on these topics.
