My work focuses on social judgment and behavior. I examine how people form impressions of individuals and groups as well as the consequences of these impressions on prosocial behaviors (e.g., trust, cooperation, helping), competitive interaction (e.g., conflict, exploitation, aggression), and justice judgments (e.g., praise, blame, punishment). A central aspect of this work is the folk psychology of everyday "mind-reading" -- how we make inferences about what the people around us think, want, and feel.
