Senior Lecturer in Psychology

Research area(s)

Effects of interpresonal attitudes (incorporating attachment orientations) and interpersonal traits on pro-relationship behaviour (e.g., accommodation, forgiveness) in close relationships; covariance among aspects of ethnic identity (including exploration, commitment, ethnic speech, and ethnic actions); unidimensionality versus multidimensionality of measures concerning inner wellbeing.

Research Interests

I am a social psychologist who examines individual differences in various aspects of social behaviour, especially (though not exclusively) within close relationships.  Not only do I conduct empirical research on personality and social behaviour; but I also write theoretical books on personality (and, usually, social behaviour within close relationships).
