Mortality Concerns and Moral Decision Making Lab
Welcome to the Mortality Concerns and Moral Decision Making Lab, directed by Ross Rogers. I received my BA and MS in Psychology from Shippensburg University and my PhD in Experimental (Social) Psychology from Ohio University. I’ve enjoyed teaching general psychology courses, as well as research methods, statistics, and social psychology courses.
My research interests broadly cover two main areas:
- How concerns about meaning and individual significance stemming, in part, from human awareness of personal mortality impact cognitions, attitudes, and behaviors.
- How situational factors (such as the extent to which an actor was forced to act) and/or individual factors (such as an actor’s prior character) impact moral decision making, specifically assignment of blame to actors for actions that result in negative social consequences.
I am more than happy to discuss the above research topics or others related to social psychology and can be reached at [email protected].
