    My research spans a number of different areas of social psychology, personality and individual differences, and social cognition. My PhD was completed in the area of implicit social cognition and I have recently undertaken several projects exploring implicit and explicit prejudices. This research includes student projects and inter-university collaborations. I also have interests in the area of implicit self-cognitions, especially self-evaluations and cognitions about eating and body image. Most recently I have commenced research in the topic of embodied cognition (e.g., the effects of tactile sensations such as roughness on social behaviours such as donating to charity).
