The psychology of helping

I which situations do people help more or less? What types of recipients receive more and less money? Which psychological mechanisms (emotions, thoughts and beliefs) influence the degree of helping? How do we allocate resources in situations where we cannot help everyone? Are different people influenced differently by arguments used in charitable advertising? These questions (and many others) are central in my research. 

I was born and raised in the Swedish region called Småland, but I have also lived three years in Tokyo. In January 2015, I took my Ph.D. at Lund University and later the same year I began working as a postdoctoral researcher at Linköping University. I am part of the JEDI-Lab, and my research is about moral decision making, and more specifically decision making in helping situations.
