Jana Schaich Borg is Associate Research Professor at Duke’s Social Science Research Institute. She is also the Director of Duke’s Master in Interdisciplinary Data Science Program, co-Director of Duke’s Moral Attitudes and Decision-Making Lab, and co-Director of Duke’s Moral Artificial Intelligence Lab. Dr. Jana Schaich Borg uses neuroscience, computational modeling, and emerging technologies to study how we make social decisions that influence, or that are influenced by, other people. As a neuroscientist, she employs neuroimaging, ECOG, simultaneous electrophysiological recordings in rats, and 3-D videos to gain insight into how humans and rodents make social decisions. As a data scientist, she develops new statistical approaches to analyze these high-dimensional multi-modal data in order to uncover principles of how the brain integrates complex social information with internal representations of value to motivate pro-social actions.

Daryl Cameron is Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and senior research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State University. His research and teaching focus on the psychological processes involved in empathy and moral decision-making. Much of his work examines motivational factors that shape empathetic emotions and behaviors toward others. This line of research is united by the theme that empathy is often a motivated choice: many apparent limitations of empathy may result from how people strategically weigh their costs and benefits. In his second line of research, Cameron uses tools from social cognitive psychology—including implicit measurement and mathematical modeling—to understand individual differences in moral intuitions and empathy for pain. Cameron’s research has been funded by multiple grants from the National Science Foundation, as well as the John Templeton Foundation. His work has been published in venues such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Psychological Science, and Personality and Social Psychology Review. His research on moral judgments about implicit racial bias (Cameron, Payne, & Knobe, 2010) received the Morton Deutsch Award for Best Article from the International Society for Justice Research, and his paper on effort and empathy choice (Cameron et al., 2019, JEP: General) received Penn State’s Roy C. Buck Award for best social sciences paper by a pre-tenure faculty member. Dr. Cameron received the Early Career in Affective Science Award in 2022, from the Society for Affective Science.
