Human or social values are usually defined as abstract ideals which are guiding principles of our lives. I am interested in all kind of effects to and of values. However, since I have to be more specific in my PhD, I want, among other things, to investigate the relationship between values, moral identity and emotions in different cultures (Brazil, India and UK).

Moreover I am interested in Moralpsychology and daydreaming.
