I am a professor of organizational behavior and psychology at Stanford University. My research uses social psychological experiments to investigate the interplay between behavior, self-image, and social norms, especially in domains that have moral meaning for individuals.

Here are examples of questions I have pursued:

  • How does being good license people to be bad?
  • Why are moral exemplars rejected by their peers?
  • How do people cope with acting selfishly?
  • Why do vegetarians annoy people who eat meat?
  • Why do attractive people look so familiar?
