I’m an experimental psychologist.

My job is to put people in situations and see what happens. The results, which I call experimental history, have been covered everywhere from The New York Times to Jimmy Kimmel. Here, I chase down what is true and try to make it useful.

All of the pictures were taken by my dad in the 1980s, when he was a photographer in rural northern Ohio.
