Research Interests

My research interests lie in cultural evolution (how information changes as it is transmitted from person to person), with a view to examining the social and cognitive factors underpinning stereotype formation and maintenance as well as an interest in stereotypes more generally. I am also a member of The Self Lab with Dr Sheila Cunningham (Abertay University) and Dr Josephine Ross (Dundee University), where our focus is on understanding self-processing biases in both children and adults.
