Research Activities:

I am a Social Psychologist, although I also do have research that falls under the banner of Evolutionary Psychology. My research focus is on intergroup relations. I am particularly interested in intergroup metacognitions and metaemotions insofar as they affect intergroup prejudice and discrimination. I approach my research utilising social identity theory, intergroup emotions (esp. collective guilt, anxiety) research, and system justification theory.

I have undertaken work with both community and student samples investigating the impact of intergroup rejection on race relations, extending this to situations of cross-group friendship and intergroup apology rejection.

Recently, I have begun a line of research looking at the social factors that predict sexual satisfaction. In particular, I hope to partially explain the disparity between men and women's sexual satisfaction through looking at evolutionary factors, political orientation, group identification, and constructs such as sexual guilt and propensity to experience disgust.

At present I am lecturing in both statistics and social psychology. Please contact me if you would like copies of any of my papers, listed below, or any further information about my research.
