In the Research Matters Podcast, I interview leading scientific researchers in psychology and other social sciences in an effort to understand what they do that makes them productive. This podcast is intended to help graduate students, professors, and scientists learn actionable strategies that can help them in their own research endeavors. I strive to help draw out the tips, tricks, habits, and routines of extraordinarily productive researchers.

In these interviews, we cover topics like:

How to develop a programmatic line of research
How to build a team of amazing collaborators
Getting things done
Writing productively
Grant writing strategies
Creating an effective research lab
Applying design thinking to research
How to develop great research ideas
When to turn your research into a book
Managing grad students
Maintain a balance with other aspects of life, such as health, fun, and family
How to choose which projects to invest in
How to be efficient
And much more…
