The lab focuses on factors that enable people to think and act wisely situating them in a larger cultural context: How can individuals and groups adaptively resolve social conflicts? What factors foster wise reasoning and adaptive emotion regulation over the life-span?

Current projects focus on wisdom and prosociality in the face of intergroup and interpersonal conflicts; emotional complexity across cultures; culture and religion; antecedents of cultural change; and perception and consequences of human aging.
