Note to Future PhD students

I will be taking on new students in the Fall of 2016. If you are interested in applying, please visit the Social Decision and Organizational Science Page here, to get a feel of our program. My current research areas are documented in my recent publications, but we have ongoing projects on cultural tightness-looseness, punishment and revenge, organizational conflict cultures, race and negotiation, culture and self control, expatriation, and forgiveness. I am a generalist and other topics are always welcome, especially if your own interests overlap with mine. I will be selecting applicants using GPA, GRE scores, research experience, intrinsic interest and passion for science, and letters of recommendation.

If you decide to apply, please list specifically in your application (a) a few specific research questions you are interested in pursuing, (b) other faculty members that you would like to work with in the SDOS program.


Feel free to contact me with the provided information. I will do my best to reply in a timely manner.
