I work in moral psychology, both on an experimental level and a conceptual level. On the one hand, I have collaborated on experiments that look at how self-directed moral emotions can impact attributions of responsibility through surveys designed to gauge the intuitions of respondents. On the other, I have been considering the evidentiary status of such moral intuitions in the first place, and how much weight it is legitimate to attribute to studies of exactly this sort. When taken together, I hope to have a better understanding of moral emotions, moral intuition, and moral psychology.
