    Summary Statement of Research Interests
    My goal is to understand how ideology and morality interact to influence human thought and behavior. I am particularly interested in how ideological and moral values shape behavior outside of conscious awareness, and in how these effects vary across individuals and cultures. I use a variety of methodological approaches to study the ways ideology moderates both the content of moral concerns and the processes of moral judgment and decision-making.
