My wider research interests include socio-political psychology, specifically the way in which social and national identity, efficacy and deprivation interact to enhance or inhibit social change. I am particularly interested in the psychological mechanisms behind the Scottish Independence movement.
I have previous research experience working on projects focussing on the value of group wisdom and also migrant child language brokering.
My current research is exploring group processes during emergency evacuation procedures, specifically within the context of high-rise fires.
