Personal profile


I earned my PhD in Psychology in 2000 (University of Glasgow, Scotland). After working for 2 years as a postdoctoral fellow (School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh) I spent 2 years working as a research scientist (Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute, Kyoto, Japan). I joined the faculty in the School of Psychological Science, UWA, in 2004.


I am a cognitive scientist interested in social influence. I primarily use laboratory experiments to study social influence in the context of: interpersonal communication, group decision-making, information transmission and, more broadly, culture and its evolution.
