I work under the supervision of Dr Molly Crockett, Dr Nadira Faber, and Prof. Miles Hewstone, I am interested in how our prosocial intentions and behaviours are mediated and moderated by intergroup processes. My core academic interests relate to moral psychology and the social psychology of intergroup conflict, prejudice, and discrimination. When, and why, are people moral – and when are they not? What causes people to discriminate and even murder members of other groups? What evolutionary and cognitive mechanisms drive our moral behavior in groups? How can altruistic behaviour be encouraged?
I have previously worked at Yale University as a Visiting Researcher and Harvard University as a Fulbright Fellow. Currently, I hold a position as a Research Associate in the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics (Department of Philosophy), where I conduct work on moral reasoning, and particularly how this related to prejudice and social attitudes. In this strand of research I am investigating the role of utilitarian and deontological judgements with individual differences and social attitudes and how perceptions of difference in both the formation and content of moral judgements is associated with prejudice.
