I am working under the supervision of Emilie Caspar and Kalliopi Ioumpa on a project that aims to understand how empathy and responsibility are modulated by coercive circumstances as opposed to freely chosen decisions. We are also especially interested in understanding how responsibility can be diffused when orders are given to another agent (human or robot). To answer these questions we will be using fMRI, EEG, and behavioral data. I find really exciting to think of the implications this can have for society!
