Daniel Lim



I'm interested in examining the social-environmental factors that alter our capacity for empathy and compassion. More specifically, I study how experiences with adversity could accentuate or attenuate prosocial proclivities. I am also interested in designing and testing social interventions that could help us exercise moral emotions (i.e. empathy, and compassion) broadly and effectively. Another line of research that I have involves the examination of contemplative practices (i.e. mindfulness meditation) and its effects on social behavior.
