I'm an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Toronto.
My research concerns the interplay between two general mental processes that influence judgment: rational, deliberate analysis, and intuitive, emotional reactions. I am interested in the interaction between these two kinds of thinking and the implications for people’s beliefs, actions, and choices. In my research, I have studied how intuition affects our choices; how our moral beliefs determine our own actions and our judgments of others; and how the emotion of disgust can predict our moral and political attitudes.
