My research is characterized by a functional / evolutionary approach to reciprocity in social behavior. People avoid imbalances in the outcomes of their interactions with others and express a strong dislike for both over- and underbenefitting in social exchange. However, far from indicating a stable preference for either selfishness or fairness and morality, my research suggests that people's perceptions of- and reactions to social interactions show functional biases to the demands and opportunities of the social situation.
