Professor
Department of Psychology

My program of research focuses on the psychology of moral development, particularly in terms of moral reasoning, personality, motivation, and identity. This research is aimed at developing a more full-bodied account of moral functioning that may help explain the psychological dynamics in exemplary moral action; thus we examine both individuals’ conceptions of moral excellence as well as the psychological functioning of a range of actual moral exemplars.
