Daryl Cameron earned his B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy from the College of William and Mary in 2006, and received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from UNC Chapel Hill in 2013. Daryl is an Assistant Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Iowa. Daryl has two primary lines of research. First, he focuses on the causes and consequences of compassion. He has shown how our tendency to feel more compassion for one victim than many victims is driven by fear of compassion and emotion regulation. He has also examined how regulating compassion can create its own costs by changing moral identity and moral principles. His other line of research explores the affective dynamics of moral judgment. He has shown how emotional awareness can enable more informed moral decisions, and how automatic and controlled emotional processes interact to shape moral judgments and decisions to help others. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation.
