Current research interests

My research focuses on the intersection of morality, power, and politics. I am particularly interested in the (in)consistency of moral judgements/intuitions, the factors (environmental and individual) that impact this, and how political identity can drive self-serving biases and moral disengagement. My expertise lies in combining computational modeling, advanced statistical analyses, experimental design, neuroimaging, and individual differences/differential approaches.
