Current Ph.D. Students


Brodie Dakin is a Ph.D. student exploring the intersection between meaning and morality. Specifically, he is studying how the search for meaning and presence of meaning in one’s life differentially predict inclination toward costly prosocial behaviour.


Christoph Klebl is a Ph.D. student studying moral emotions. His interests include the influence of positive emotions such as awe and elevation on moral concern and moral judgment, as well as beauty and the emotional experience associated with it.


Josh Rhee is a Ph.D. student researching how and when everyday non-moral ideas may come to gain moral significance. He is particularly interested in the influence of intergroup conflicts, and challenges to people’s existing assumptions about the world, in bringing about increasingly moralized thinking.
