About

I am interested in the relationship of disordered moral behavior to the brain. I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago in the Social Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory headed by Professor Jean Decety. We are investigating the neurobiological and social correlates of attitude change when people watch propaganda videos produced by violent extremist organizations.
