I am Professor of Behavioural Science, and research theme lead for behavioural sciences and psychology, at Newcastle University.

I study a number of different topics relating to behaviour, cognition, society and health. I mainly study humans, but sometimes other animals (especially starlings) too. My main currently active research interests are:

  • Origins and consequences of social inequality
  • Trust, cooperation and antisocial behaviour
  • Impacts of deprivation and adversity on the individual over the life course
  • Hunger and eating

I will be a Visiting Professor at CEU Department of Cognitve Science in Fall term 2021/22 between September and December, 2021. 

The PhD - level elective course I am going to teach is titled `From cognition to society: What can cognitive science contribute to understanding socioeconomic, political and cultural phenomena perspective. `
