My research focuses on cognitive complexity and culture. The cognitive complexity lab specifically focuses on the causes, correlates, and consequences of complex versus simple thinking. The culture lab specifically examines the causes and consequences of shared beliefs and culture. For more information on both labs, see In addition to numerous scientific publications and presentations, my work on the complexity of political figures has been featured in popular media outlets such as the Washington Post, USA Today, Search Magazine, and Entertainment and Technology Magazine. Luke's also been interviewed about his research on NPR and BBC Radio. If you want more information, links to news articles and academic papers, and his CV, go to this link for his lab's web page:
