Büsra Yelbuz’s research focuses on the dispositional and social factors that influence selectivity in prosocial and antisocial behaviour. The first part of her PhD project tackles the question of why some individuals are more selective than others in who they are prosocial towards, and whether such individual differences can be explained by personality traits. She is also working on adapting well-established measures of prosocial behavior to capture inter-individual variance in selective prosociality.
