The Moral Emotions and Trust Lab (MEATLab) is directed by Piercarlo, and is located in the psychology department at Claremont McKenna College. The lab studies the psychological mechanisms underlying all things related to trust, cooperation, and moral judgment, with a particular interest in how emotions influence behaviors and decisions in these domains.
