My research focuses on prosocial behaviour and how action identification levels construe recall of past immoral or moral behaviour moderating compensatory behaviour for past immoral actions. At the moment I am undertaking research on autobiographical events and how the visual perspective a person adopts moderates self compensatory and behavioural consistency for past moral deeds through the level of abstraction of past events. For abstract conceptualising of past moral behaviours in the third person perspective moral values related to self-identity would be salient resulting in greater prosocial behaviour. Conversely concrete conceptualisation of past moral behaviour would affirm moral status thereby relaxing subsequent moral action however for immoral behaviour the field perspective individuals would compensate for their selfish act by acting more morally. In addition I am working on prosocial behaviour between in group and out group members and how action identification levels can moderate compensatory and behavioural consistency in relation to moral identities that become salient.

My main research focuses on prosocial behaviour and how action identification levels construe recall of past immoral or moral behaviour moderating compensatory behaviour for autobiographical events. At present I am second supervisor to an EEG project on information processing in depression. In the past I have supervised projects on semantic associations for emotional words for young and old. In addition I supervised projects on how mood moderates memory recall for high and low self-esteem individuals.
