Key Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding and improving intergroup relations with a particular focus on intergroup contact theory, and social identity theory.

I am also interested in how these theoretical approaches can be applied to encourage behaviour change in other domains, including organisational and environmental behaviour. 

Master's and PhD Supervision Interests:

Examining the consequences of positive (and negative) intergroup contact experiences.

The use of imagined intergroup contact as an indirect prejudice reduction technique.

Developing social psychological interventions to encouraging pro-environmental behaviour.
