Each Thursday, the LAPA fellows meet with a member of the Princeton faculty to discuss what that faculty member is working on at the moment. It is one of the ways that fellows get to see what is going on at Princeton, and it is one of the ways that Princeton faculty get to meet the LAPA fellows. Attendance at the lunch is by invitation only.

Much of the research John Darley has done in the past has involved decisions and actions that have moral components or implications. Lately he has turned to looking directly at moral decisions, particularly ones involved in the decision to punish another for a transgression. He has a related interest in interpersonal power and how it plays out in social interactions, and how we attempt to manage others with incentive systems.
