Welcome

wjsowdenI am currently a Ph.D. candidate in social psychology at the University of Michigan. The overarching question that drives my research is how does the interaction between our sociality and morality influence our psychology, behavior, relationships, and well-being? I’m currently examining how interpersonal relationships and psychological distance influence moral judgment and decision making.
