I work on the relation between emotions and values, and the relevance of both of these to rational action. I am in interested in how emotions such as envy, shame and disgust affect behavior, and whether or in what senses the contribution of these emotions to behavior enhances or diminishes rationality. I also work on the evolution of moral and emotional capacities, and on game theoretic models of justice.
