Research interests

My research is aiming to identify the behavioural componetents involved in an individual's donating actions; focusing on the prevalence of altruism and the degree to which guilt, selfishness and self image are impactful. Additionally, I aim to understand how these factors are affected under a change in the charitable giving context.
