Martha K Berg

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Social Psychology at the University of Michigan. I hold a M.S in Social Psychology from the University of Michigan, and an M.S. in Global Health and a B.S. in Psychology from Duke University.

I am a member of the Culture & Cognition Lab, led by Dr. Shinobu Kitayama, and the Emotion & Self-Control Lab, led by Dr. Ethan Kross.

My research examines the neural, psychological, and behavioral correlates of interpersonal moral decisions, and explores how cultural norms powerfully influence these processes. More broadly, I aim to understand the interplay of relational and sociocultural dynamics in shaping people’s choices.
