My primary academic interests lie in moral judgment and decision making, prosocial and altruistic behavior, and the role of various sociocognitive and socioaffective abilities (e.g., empathy, theory of mind, emotion regulation, etc.) in making such judgments. In addition to studying moral cognition in healthy individuals using neuroscientific methods (fMRI, psychophysiology, etc.). I also study clinical populations and sub-clinical personality traits (autism, alexithymia, psychopathy, multiple sclerosis, etc.) to investigate current models of moral cognition. Recently, I have also started applying computational modelling approaches to understand moral learning.
In addition to my research interests, I am also passionate about open-source software development. I especially love working on developing tools that make data visualization and statistical analysis more fun.
