David DeSteno is a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, and a fellow of several prestigious scientific societies. At a broad level, his work seeks to illuminate the mind’s foundations for moral behavior. By studying when, how, and why emotions like compassion, gratitude, and empathy emerge, his research has begun to uncover ways in which these virtues can be amplified to combat the problems of distrust, inequality, aggression, and loneliness that plague society. His work has been repeatedly funded by the National Science Foundation and has been regularly featured in the media, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, CBS Sunday Morning, and NPR’s Radiolab and On Point. He is the author of Emotional Success (featured in a viral New York Times Sunday Review piece prior to launch), The Truth About Trust (featured in articles and videos at Harvard Business Review), and coauthor of The Wall Street Journal spotlight psychology bestseller Out of Character. He frequently writes about his research for The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Harvard Business Review, Pacific Standard, and The Atlantic. David received his PhD in psychology from Yale University.
