Current Research

Most of my research is on moral judgment and prosocial behavior.

Some key papers: My most recent work looks at the development of the moral circle (and "Welfare Tradeoff Ratios"), and at how adults understand the moral judgments of people who disagree with them. I often collaborate with undergraduates on my projects, so definitely feel free to e-mail me (mark.sheskin at if you are interested in getting experience as a research assistant!
