Research

I am a social and organisational psychologist.  My research focuses on the areas of self/identity, attitudes and values, positive psychology and risk perception. In particular, I examine such issues as self-definition (with Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton; Lowell Gaertner, Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee; Erin O'Mara, Department of Psychology, University of Dayton), close relationships (with Elle Boag, School of Social Sciences, Birmingham City University; Katherine Carnelley, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton; Kate Cavanagh, School of Psychology, University of Sussex; Angela Rowe, School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol; Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton), workplace relationships (with Katherine Carnelley, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton; Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton), work performance feedback (with Erica Hepper, School of Psychology, University of Surrey; Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton), inter-group relations (with Elle Boag, School of Social Sciences, Birmingham City University; Katherine Carnelley, School of Psychology, University of Southampton; Benjamin Everly, School of Business, Management and Economics, University of Sussex’ Angela Rowe, School of Experimental Psychology), attitudes and values (with; Wing Yee Cheung, Department of Psychology, University of Winchester; Gregory Maio, Department of Psychology, University of Bath; Shova Thapa Karki, School of Business, Management and Economics, University of Sussex), positive emotions (with Katherine Carnelley, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton; Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton), organisational nostalgia (with Constantine Sedikides, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton; Tim Wildschut, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton) and risk perception (with Ian Dawson, Southampton Business School, University of Southampton; Johnnie Johnson, Southampton Business School, University of Southampton; Hans van der Heijden, School of Business, Management and Economics, University of Sussex). I also have a strong background in research methods and advanced statistical techniques, such as structural equation modelling and hierarchical linear modelling. I would be happy to supervise PhD students with a degree in psychology and similar research interests.
