Research Interests

My research interests are in broad areas of social psychology such as intergroup relations, social persuasion and motivation. A great part of my research focuses on the study of ethics, both in the field of negotiation and under the lens of Self-Determination Theory. I am especially interested in interdisciplinary collaborations bridging social psychology, philosophy and public policy.
