My research focus lies in how multiple social identites can be represented and how people react to norm conflict between ingroups. Particularly, I am interested in dissonance arising from such norm conflicts and how individuals cope with this dissonance. I am further interested in environmental psychology and how wearable sensors and feedback on environmental stressors (e.g., particulate matter) can inform healthy travel behaviour for pedestrians and cyclists.
