To do so, he draws on his expertise as a historian of science working at the intersection of history, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. He is a tenure-track professor at Ohio State and a member of the Decision Sciences Collaborative there, where he researches emotions, decision-making, meaning and purpose, agency and conformism, community, youth, social control, fun and leisure, and civic engagement in historical contexts. He published dozens of peer-reviewed essays in academic venues in the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, and elsewhere, as well as numerous popular articles, and serves on a number of boards, for instance as the Science Adviser on the Planet Purpose Advisory Board.
