Cameron receives National Science Foundation grant

Daryl Cameron, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology, has received a three-year National Science Foundation grant. The award amount is $336,832, and will be used for his research, “Expanding the Limits of Compassion: A Motivated Emotion Regulation Account of Compassion Collapse.” Results from this study will explain why people often lack compassionate emotion and behavior in response to large-scale crises such as natural disasters, epidemics, and genocides.

New knowledge gained from this research will have implications for overcoming impediments to compassionate action, and has implications for everyday decision-making, philanthropy, and social policy.
