    I am a quantitatively-trained social psychologist with interests that span theoretical and applied concerns. My current research centres around specific questions of: (a) how social identities are a lens through which people experience the world and act in it; (b) how people navigate membership in groups that are marginalised or devalued, and express themselves and their identity to others against this backdrop, and; (c) how social group memberships, and social relationships, impact on individual health and well-being.
