Courses for Summer 2016 1st 6wks: Individual Morality & Social Justice
I received my B.A. from Kalamazoo College (2006), an M.A. from Georgia State University (2010), studied abroad at the Budapest Semester in Cognitive Science, and worked at the Moral Cognition Lab (see also) at Harvard. I currently work in the Concepts and Cognition Lab at Berkeley.
My dissertation investigates what dual-processing theories in psychology (e.g., on implicit biases) mean for autonomy, free will, and moral responsibility - for what they are, and whether it turns out that we have less of them than we thought.
