Lecturer in Social Psychology, Lancaster University

I'm a psychological scientist who studies the psychological processes involved in moral judgment, behaviour, and decision-making. I'm a member of the Moral Cognition and Behaviour (MCAB) Lab at Lancs.

My research focuses mainly on issues from moral psychology, particularly questions about the way people think about:

The moral standing of animals, which features factor into these judgments and when are people likely to ignore or discard these factors
The conceptual relationship between harm, injustice, and wrongdoing
The role different emotions play in moral judgment, particularly investigating differences between anger and disgust
The fundamental dimensions of social cognition, which moral character features heavily in
The role religion and supernatural beliefs plays in shaping people's moral decisions and behavior
