John Darley is Warren Professor of Psychology at Princeton University, where he joined the faculty in 1968. Professor Darley is a former president of the American Psychological Society and recipient of numerous national awards, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science Socio-Psychological Essay Prize (with Bibb Latané), the Society of Experimental Social Psychology Distinguished Scientist Award, and the American Psychological Foundation Media Award for Distinguished Contributions in Communicating Psychology to the Public. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Psychological Society, the American Psychological Association, and the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues.
Much of Professor Darley's research has focused decisions and actions that have moral components or implications (e.g., decisions about whether to punish someone for a transgression). Related to this, he is also interested in interpersonal power, how it plays out in social interactions, and how people attempt to manage others with incentive systems.
