I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at the department of management, University of Sussex.
I received my PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Sheffield in 2015, supervised by Professors Richard Crisp and Eran Halperin. My postoc was in the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. Following this, I held a position of lecturer (assistant professor) in the Surrey Business School.
My research focuses on how emotions influence intergroup relations and conflict, as well as ways to regulate these emotions. In particular, I study the role of hope in social contexts, including conflict and intergroup relations, collective action and civil engagement, negotiations, and decision making. Along these lines, I develop experimental techniques to induce and regulate hope.
