Background

I am a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. I was previously a Postdoc in the Department of Psychology at Yale University (2019-2021) and the Princeton Univeristy Center for Human Values (2018). I completed my PhD in Psychology at the Univeristy of Queensland in 2018. 

Research summary

My research is in moral development and moral psychology and I am interested in understanding barriers to prosocial and ethical behaviour. Right now, my research focuses on unusually altruistic groups,  moral expansiveness, and attitudes towards food technology/naturalness (particularly in the context of cultured meat).
