Congratulations Dr. Wagemans!

Last Friday, Fieke Wagemans became Dr. Wagemans after defending her dissertation entitled, “The good, the bad, and the gross: Disgust sensitivity and moral judgments”. Her dissertation tested how and why trait disgust sensitivity was associated with different types of moral judgments. This builds upon a long line of work showing that moral judgments are not always rational and considered, but instead also emerge and are shaped by our emotional reactions.

Interested in learning more? You can find her entire dissertation here and one of the chapters was already published in Emotion.

She also did a lot of other work during her PhD, such the effects of skin blemishes on trait impressions, the social side of shame, and a review of how to help political psychology create generalizable knowledge. Plus more in the pipeline. Congrats Fieke!
