I am a Reader in Psychology in the School of Life & Health Sciences, Aston University, UK. I am also a member of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (1998-),British Academy of Management (2008–), British Association for Cognitive Neuroscience (2006–2008) and The New York Academy of Sciences (2000–2006). I have been a member of The British Psychological Society (since 1998 and C.Psychol since 2008), and a full member of the Division of Occupational Psychology (2009-) and Division of Teachers and Researchers in Psychology (2011-) and in 2011 I was elected to the Fellowship of The British Psychological Society (AFBPsS, 2011).
I have a longstanding research interest in ‘social’ cognitive neuroscience. As such, I examine the cognitive factors that moderate our behaviour in groups and I do so from different perspectives. For over a decade, I have examined a range of behavioural moderators e.g., perception of faces, beauty, social status etc and have published extensively in various high impact journals. Recently, I have become interested in exploring ‘applied’ social cognitive neuroscience and use educational or organisational scenarios as a means to examine the cognitive mechanisms of group behaviour in an applied context.
