Broadly speaking, I am interested in moral judgment, studied as a social psychological phenomenon.
I currently have projects
(in various stages of completion) related to willingness-to-pay for morally-charged consumer goods,
the role of perceived moral character in person perception,
and the consequences for moral judgment of considering humanity to be one's moral ingroup. I am also conducting a
meta-analysis on the impact of incidental physiological disgust on the severity of people's moral judgments.
For more detailed information
about any of my projects, please feel free to contact me by email.
