Introduction
I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Psychology at the Universidad de los Andes, Chile. I graduated in Psychology and Philosophy at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and got my dissertation in Psychological Science at University of California, Irvine. My work focuses on the Social Psychology of Morality, Politics and Religion. Specifically, I'm interested in processes of motivated reasoning, attitudes and cognitive representations in these domains.

We analyzed over 4,500 individuals’ responses in the aftermath of two collective traumatic events: Boston Bombings (2013) and Ebola outbreak (2014). The poster shows how party affiliation moderates the e...

Abortion Attitudes are determined by a multitude of psychological constructs. Previous research has stressed the role of Sexism and Religiosity in understanding abortion attitudes.

Ante la desaparición de la voluntad del discurso psicológico, se busca en la psicología voluntarista de Wundt alguna orientación para acercarse a este tema. Se desarrolla una aproximación histórica para comprender el sentido fundacional de Wundt – más allá de las historias “oficiales” de la psicología – y se esboza una posible explicación de su inf...

Free will has been an elusive problem for psychologists, from the same beginnings of psychology. Everyday experience and folk psychology conceive as evident that we freely act and make decisions.
