Research Interests

I study judgment and decision-making processes, focusing on topics such as altruism, fairness, trust, reciprocity, cooperation, conflict resolution and unethical behavior. Additionally, I have a specific interest in the interplay between dual processes such as intuition and reasoning, emotions and emotion-regulation, and automaticity and self-control.  In my work I try to capture the effects of such dual processes, and their interplay, on the way we form our judgments and decisions both in individual and in social contexts.
