Associate Professor Dan Fessler's Work On Danger Assessment Featured In LA Times, The Economist, And The UCLA Newsroom
April 25, 2012

Prof. Fessler and colleagues' article on danger assessment was featured in both the Los Angeles TimesThe Economist, and the UCLA Newsroom.  The study finds that people believe men holding a dangerous object, such as a gun, to be taller and stronger than if they held an innocuous object like a paintbrush.  The article was written with post-doctoral fellow Colin Holbrook and graduate student Jeffery Snyder and is published in PLoS One.
