Bio/Research

I am interested in how we think about ourselves and others and how we believe we are perceived by others. My work is influenced by social judgement researchers who emphasize the differences between self-perception and other-perception (i.e., the self-other asymmetry).



With Jennifer Fortune, I demonstrated that people anticipate being judged “guilty by association” by others when a peer behaves inappropriately and that a simple perspective-taking exercise can eliminate this effect. In current work, my students and I are exploring the role of micro expressions of emotion, and their detection, in interpersonal behaviour. With Claire Baxter, I am investigating what it means to label another's behaviour as “irrational” and the role of naiive realism in such judgements.



In contrast to much work in social cognition, my studies often involve dyads and the (often complex) psychological processes that occur within those dyads. Ultimately, my theoretical and empirical work is aimed at an enriched understanding of the self-other asymmetry and its implications.
