Research and Creative Activities

My research focuses on adolescent moral development, primarily how intuitive feelings about right and wrong develop during early adolescence and how those feelings influence later outcomes, e.g., beliefs about science, political affiliations, and the use of stereotypes in rapid moral judgments.
