Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the evolution and psychological underpinnings of sociality. More specifically, I am investigating the nature of other-regarding concerns in governing our social behaviour. To investigate how people come to know and care about the welfare of others, I use ideas from game theory and methods from experimental economics, as well as standard psychological approaches, to study nonhuman primates and children.
