Research Interests

I have been involved in a variety of psychological research, ranging from intergroup dynamics and motivation, mindfulness intervention, and romantic relationships.

My current research interests are broad and cover topics such as unethical behaviours at work, moral psychology, people’s sense of fairness, and goal pursuit. I have been working with Dr. James Beck to examine the conditions under which goal setting can lead to lying. I have also been developing research projects with Dr. Ramona Bobocel to study how people’s sense of fairness affects people’s detection of questionable behaviours. We also plan to examine fairness behaviours and people’s desires for fairness in future studies.

Please feel free to contact me via email regarding my research and/or broadly about the I-O program.
