Research interests

My main research interests in social psychology relate to issues of justice and morality, intergroup relations, and compliance with laws and regulations. In the area of justice and morality, my research addresses the implications of wrongdoing and victimization in both interpersonal and intergroup contexts, from victim, offender and third-party perspectives, with a focus on processes of justice restoration and moral repair. For example, I am interested in the determinants and effects of punishment, revenge, apologies, and forgiveness and an offender's confession, shame and self-forgiveness. I also have an interest in processes of social change and collective action to advance justice. In the area of intergroup relations, I am interested in processes of reconciliation following intergroup wrongdoing, as well as social discrimination and tolerance between groups. For example, I have been studying how superordinate identities that encompass two groups affect the quality of their relationship. In the area of compliance, I am interested in the role of fairness perceptions, social identity, attributions of legitimacy to regulators and law enforcement agencies, and the interaction between norms and law.
