Research Interests

How is it that people can disagree intensely about what is right, just, or fair? My program of research is aimed toward reconceptualizing much of moral psychology as embedded in social-relational cognition and unpacking the ways in which different schemas for social relationships entail correspondingly distinct moral motives that often conflict with each other. Ultimately, I hope to examine the socio-ecological conditions that lead individuals to approach relationships in different ways, leading to competing moral intuitions and actions in otherwise identical situations.
