My research looks at how preferences are expressed and sustained over time. Specifically, I am interested in how social preferences, e.g. altruism and adherence to social norms, are expressed through different cognitive mechanisms like attention and evaluation during decision making and how outcomes of these types of choices shape and sustain those preferences. Moreover, I am also interested in how people anticipate changes to their own preferences with time and how that relates to how they anticipate their own preferences in relation to other people around them.
