I am a research fellow in the Psychology Unit and my theoretical training in personality and social psychology stems from the tradition of self and identity. I received a MSc in research methods in psychology at the University of Bristol and a PhD in social psychology at Cardiff University. My central research interests lie in the area of self and identity and my research revolves around three themes: (1) self-evaluation motives (e.g., self-enhancement, self-assessment, self-verification); (2) self-relevant values (e.g., benevolence, power, achievement); and (3) self-conscious emotions (e.g., nostalgia, disgust, shame).
When we are born, when we enter this world, it is as if we signed a pact for the rest of our life, but a day may come when we will ask ourselves Who signed this on my behalf?
