Daniel Randles



I’m a social psychologist and Banting postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. My current work focuses on the psychological processes underlying self-control. In particular, aiming to better describe self-control at a cognitive level, develop strategies for improving it at the individual level, and constructing models for understanding different patterns of self-control that emerge at societal levels.

My work involves a range of empirical tools, including experimental manipulations, pharmaceutical manipulations, behavioral coding, neurophysiological measurement techniques, machine learning, and secondary analysis of large-sample datasets.
