Research Overview

I am interested in investigating how people develop specific intergroup propensities. In particular, I am interested in the impact of societal practices on individual and collective actions, as well as leadership decision-making. My project follows an interdisciplinary approach that involves social influence, political components, and individual differences in order to investigate the emergence of radical intentions, and the underlying socio-cognitive processes that transform these intentions into behaviour. I use computational modelling, virtual reality, physiological and behavioural measures to examine different levels of processing. For this project, I have been awarded a full studentship by the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Psychology, Lancaster University.
