My primary teaching interests focus on topics related to social psychology. I currently teach Introductory Psychology, Social Psychology and several upper-year courses. I’ve also taught courses on Statistics and Research Methods, Social Cognition and Romantic Relationships. I’m very interested in working with an honours thesis student or two each year!
My research interest lies in the intersection between the exploration of social psychological theories, and the growing problems of the human condition that surround us. My research so far has included work on encouraging positive multicultural interest, prosocial intentions and behaviour, as well as goals and motivation.
I’m always willing to chat about my teaching or research – feel free to stop by my office throughout the year to say hi and share your thoughts!
