Abhay Alaukik

Graduate Student

Hello! My name is Abhay and I will join the graduate program at the University of Florida in Fall 2020, working with Matt Baldwin in the Self Mind Society Lab. I am very interested in moral psychology, judgement-making and quantitative methods: I want to understand the factors behind the simultaneous differences and similarities among moral convictions exhibited by people across the political spectrum and/or from different cultures. I am interested in learning how to model these convictions and exploring their implications using cognitive, evolutionary and behavioral models. Other topics that I’m keenly interested in include quantitative methods, mob behavior, self-concept, and the role of emotions in moral decisions.
