EASI lab is dedicated to the study of emotion in social life. We seek to understand how people are influenced by the emotions of others. We investigate such social functions and effects of emotions in a wide array of settings, such as personal relationships, groups, conflict, negotiation, leadership, social hierarchy, customer service, sports, social media, and arts. Much of our work is inspired by Emotion as Social Information (EASI) theory.
