David DeSteno: Compassion science
David DeSteno is currently a professor of psychology at Northeastern University where he directs the Social Emotions Lab. At the broadest level, DeSteno’s lab examines the mechanisms of the mind that shape social behavior. From hypocrisy to compassion, from pride to prejudice, and from honesty to punishment, his work continually reveals that human moral behavior is much more variable than most people would predict.
