Cooperation Lab at Boston College

About Cooperation Lab at Boston College

What we study

What are the psychological mechanisms that support cooperation in humans? How do cooperative abilities develop in children? Do cooperative abilities develop similarly across different cultures? How do other animals solve cooperative dilemmas?

These are some of the questions that we tackle in the Cooperation Lab at Boston College. Using a variety of methods that capture people's behavior in cooperative dilemmas, we hope to better understand how cooperative behavior is sustained in humans, how it develops in children and how it evolves.


Undergraduate Research Assistant

June 2019 - August 2019 Chestnut Hill, MA
“The professor and other graduate students, post-doctoral fellows are very helpful, they are approachable and great listeners. They taught and assisted me a lot to fulfill my needs. The professor who runs the lab holds 1-on-1 meetings with students twice, one during mid-way and one at the end. I had a lot of chances to conduct experiments, analyze data and present the research”
