I am a professor of organizational behavior and psychology at Stanford University. My research uses social psychological experiments to investigate the interplay between behavior, self-image, and social norms, especially in domains that have moral meaning for individuals.
Here are examples of questions I have pursued:
- How does being good license people to be bad?
- Why are moral exemplars rejected by their peers?
- How do people cope with acting selfishly?
- Why do vegetarians annoy people who eat meat?
- Why do attractive people look so familiar?
