Matti Wilks

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Prof) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Edinburgh.

I use methods from social and developmental psychology to understand barriers to prosocial and ethical behaviour. Right now, my work explore the factors that shape our moral circles, the motivations of unusually altruistic groups, our attitudes towards cultured meat, and why we prefer natural things.
