I'm basically interested in how behavioral processes influence our choices. Currently, I'm using questionnaires to see how people make complex moral judgments based on their intuitions about what is right and wrong. I interpret these intuitions as forms of approach and avoidance motivation that can be in conflict with each other, so the same action could be experienced as both right and wrong and create a sense of moral ambivalence.
