Morality, Identity & Environmental Sustainability
Wilfrid Laurier University
I received most of my academic training as a Developmental Psychologist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany. Since completing my PhD in 1996, I have been continuously engaged in externally funded research on moral development. I am currently Associate Editor for Psychology of the Journal of Moral Education.
I’m currently working on my Ph.D here at WLU, after completing my MA here as well. I’m originally from Sault Ste. Marie, having moved to the area to do my undergraduate work at the University of Waterloo. My main area of interest is in the context specificity of moral decision-making, but I will also confess to being interested in statistical analysis techniques, as well as the motivational properties of hate.
I am a PhD student here at Laurier, having recently completed my BA in Psychology at Athabasca University. My primary research interests are the developmental aspects of the true self, moral identity and the interaction and overlap between those two constructs. I am also quite interested in the kinds of predictions that can be made about the trajectory of moral development from an evolutionary perspective.
I am currently a PhD student at WLU under the supervision of Dr. Krettenauer. I completed my BA with honours at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in BC. My primary research interests focus on how cognitive biases interact with moral decisions. I am also interested in how people perceive moral dilemmas and the way moral identity may influence such perceptions.
I am a current PhD student at Laurier, after recently completing my BA with honours at Queen’s University. My primary research interests focus on children’s development of moral identity motivation and its relationship to moral behaviour. I am also interested in children’s learning through artificial intelligence.
I am currently a BA in Psychology student here at Laurier doing a double minor in Sociology and Women/Gender studies. Some of my interests include moral development and abnormal psychology. I plan on applying to graduate schools and completing a masters in Psychology, but I am still unsure of what I specifically want to study.
I am currently completing my fourth year in the BA Psychology program with a legal studies option. I am interested in Developmental and Social Psychology, and am in the process of applying to graduate programs in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy. I am excited to be studying moral development this year alongside Dr. Krettenauer.
