Professor (Psychology)

I am a professor in social psychology at Durham University. I received an MSc from the London School of Economics and a PhD from Cardiff University, UK. I have published over 100 research articles, mainly in the areas of social identity, stereotyping, and prejudice. My recent research has focused on social class, social exclusion, and mental health. I have also published several articles on issues connected with the replication crisis in science. For more information about my work, please visit:
