Research interests

I have a longstanding research interest in ‘social’ cognitive neuroscience. As such, I examine the cognitive factors that moderate our behaviour in groups and I do so from different perspectives. For over a decade, I have examined a range of behavioural moderators e.g., perception of faces, beauty, social status etc and have published extensively in various high impact journals. Recently, I have become interested in exploring ‘applied’ social cognitive neuroscience and use educational or organisational scenarios as a means to examine the cognitive mechanisms of group behaviour in an applied context.
