"... I am interested in what appears to be a negative correlation between moral judgment and seniority that has characterised US research in this topic using Rest's DIT (Ponemon and others). I think the relationship between moral attitude, moral cognition and moral behaviour is quite complex. I don't think accountants' ethics are any worse that the rest of society, but they are placed in a situation where it is easy to comply with the rules of the game but produce ethically-suspect reports and advice...."

The role of moral competencies and moral development in teaching and learning.
"I work with faculty in community colleges and universities to help them link developmental theory with method: matching the teaching and curriculum to the students' current capabilities in order to build learning environments that "mentor" or "pace" the development of complexity. My conception of complexity incorporates moral development, ego development, cognitive development. The central idea is that one's teaching methods must evolve with the students."

2003-. Our Research Hypotesis: there is a positive correlation between the religious thinking and the moral development in younger generations (age group 20-30 yrs). The former studies conducted in Ro (during the communist period) have shown that there is a negative correlation between the 2 variables. Our supposition is that these results are susceptible to have been biased by the interdictions regarding religious faith and there are not valid anymore on the whole population.
