Introduction
I teach and do research in social psychology and peace psychology. I am currently investigating the concept of a “scope of justice,” or the individuals we include in our “moral community,” those we deem worthy of just distribution of tangible and intangible social goods. This research is leading me to investigate the effects of intergroup threat, particularly cultural and economic threats, on the contraction of the scope of justice. I am also beginning a line of research on intergroup trust and its role in moral exclusion and peacebuilding.

This replication meta-analysis explored the robustness of a highly cited study showing that those with low self-esteem perceived benefits for self-disclosure through Facebook compared to face-to-face interactions (i.e., Forest & Wood, 2012, Study 1). Seven preregistered direct replication attempts of this study were conducted by research teams as p...

Article
Integrative complexity reflects the degree to which the source of a communication perceives several dimensions and points of view relevant to the topic (differentiation) and the degree to which such characteristics are seen as related to each other (integration). During international crises, bilateral decreases in the integrative complexity of comm...
