I have several related lines of research. At the broadest level, I am interested in understanding how features of the person and the situation influence people to behave prosocially in a variety of interdependent settings, ranging from two-person relationships to large group settings. Currently, my main research interests include decision-making in social dilemmas, as well as individual differences in universal values, social value orientation, empathy, aggression, and the consideration of future consequences. I believe in the importance of both basic and applied research, and attempt to strike a balance between these approaches across my various research lines in an attempt to better understand those factors that contribute to, and may help resolve, a variety of real-world interdependence problems.
Over the years, my research program has benefited greatly from the contributions of many bright, motivated, and hard-working undergraduate and graduate students. Most of these students have presented various aspects of our research at regional and national conferences, and several have appeared as co-authors on peer-reviewed publications (see students in research). Our lab offers numerous opportunities to become involved in research. If you are interested, feel free to contact me via email (email@example.com).
