Research Interests

Broadly, I research how the person (personality, attributions, and attitudes) and the situation contribute to (1) intergroup negativity (primary research line) and (2) magical thinking (secondary research line). Most recently, I have focused most of my attention on investigating how, under different conditions, belief in pure
evil and belief in pure good relate to aggression and prosociality. I have also disseminated research on teaching/administration in higher education and Army leadership via research fellowships.
