Personal profile


My current work focuses on the role of gossip and reputation in human cooperation. Specifically, I am involved in experimental studies that investigate the altruistic and selfish motives behind gossip as well as how people ascribe these motives to others and a large scale experience sampling project that aims to make rigorous observations about gossip in its natural setting to understand the phenomenon better.
