My main research interest may be broadly defined as the interface between emotion, cognition and motivation. I study the role of emotion in self regulation and in social cognition. Whereas past research has mainly focused on how emotions of different valence (i.e., positive vs. negative feelings) influence different psychological outcomes, I am interested in how distinct emotions of the same valence influence behavior and thought in social context. I also study the effects of psychological distance and construal on moral judgments, attitudes, and value based behaviors. I am interested in exploring when and how people's high-order goals, values and moral principles prevail in judgment and behavior.
