My research focuses on cooperation and conflict resolution. To date, I have approached the study of these topics by primarily examining the proximate causes of cooperation; including features of both the situation (e.g., communication, incentives, and self regulatory failure) and person (e.g., social value orientation, trust, concern for the future, and gender). I also study forgiveness as an important motivational process in conflict resolution.
