Thanks for visiting my site! I'm a post-doc in the Morality Lab, directed by Liane Young, and the Cooperation Lab, directed by Katie McAuliffe, at Boston College.

My research focuses on how we respond when others transgress. In particular, I have targeted two fundamental ways we can respond: With punishment, or by ending the relationship (i.e. engaging in partner choice). I am fascinated by the different ways we use these responses, the distinct psychological processes that underlie them and how these responses emerge in development. I approach these questions from the perspective of the different functional purposes these responses serve and with a variety of methodological tools—including behavioral studies, in-lab and online, neuroimaging and developmental research.
