Personal profile


I study the psychology of morality: how people decide what is right and wrong and who is good and bad, why people are motivated to do good and sometimes fail, and why people agree and disagree over moral matters. 

My work extends to the intersection of moral psychology with attachment styles, rejection, development, religion, cognitive processing, perceptions of justice, and many other concepts. 

I am also interested in the downstream consequences of moral decisions: how do people communicate their character by moral decisions, judge others by their moral decisions, and deal with concepts like regret and moral injury after moral failings.
