My main programme of research investigates the cognitive, social, and physical underpinnings of human sociality. I am particularly interested in how humans use emotional expressions (e.g., facial expressions, laughter, swearing) to negotiate and influence their social world. I also conduct social cognition research in the areas of social and physical pain and feelings of control.

I have more recently begun work to work in the public health sphere on collaborations examining psychological predictors of life satisfaction and harms associated with hazardous drinking.
