I direct the Social Cognition Lab at Massey, and my research interests lie in investigating the social, cognitive, and physical underpinnings of human sociality. I am particularly interested in how humans use emotional expressions to make sense of–and influence–their social worlds. I also conduct experimental social cognition research in the areas of social pain and feelings of control. More recently I have begun collaborations with public health researchers examining the psychological predictors of life satisfaction and the effects of alcholic drinking on wellbeing.
