Social Processes

We use a range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to study the social and cognitive processes that shape human actions and evaluations of others.

The Social Processes research group comprises members who are internationally recognised for their work in health, social and moral decision-making, and security. Our work is funded by grants from research councils, government, industry and charities.

With the understanding of social behaviour our priority, we ask questions such as:

  • How do factors such as emotion, morality, rapport, trust, and social categorisations impact social interaction and decision-making?
  • What is the influence of context? For example, how do social processes unfold in high-risk contexts (security, industry) and healthcare systems (NHS).

Core to all research is the novel application of technology with methodologies derived from computational social science becoming commonplace. These often rely on large-scale data analysis or the deployment of remote data collection from smartphones and other wearable devices. We are strong advocates of open science.
