Career Summary

Biography

I was awarded an MSc from the London School of Economics in 1994 and a PhD from Cardiff University, UK in 2000. I worked as a lecturer at Cardiff University from 1999-2001 and joined the University of Newcastle in 2001, where I am currently a senior lecturer in the School of Psychology. The School is ranked in the top 4 of 41 Australian psychology departments in terms of its research (Excellence in Research Australia, 2012), and the University of Newcastle is ranked 1st among Australia’s universities that are under 50 years old (Times Higher Education World University Rankings, 2013-2014; QS 2014 Top 50 Under 50 rankings).

Research
I have authored 42 major research publications in the area of social psychology, including 38 journal articles, 2 book chapters, and 2 published conference papers. Over half of my journal articles are published in journals that are ranked in the top quartile of their field based on the SCImago Journal Rank indicator. My work has been cited over 2,000 times, and I am ranked in the top 20% of social psychologists based on my publication impact (career-stage e-index compared with 611 North American social psychologists; Nosek et al., 2010).

My research focuses on social group processes, including social identity, stereotyping, prejudice, and social exclusion. In the area of social identity, I have published several highly-cited articles that defend social identity theory against its critics and call for more sophisticated tests of its core hypotheses. In the area of stereotyping, I have identified new processes that explain why people perceive members of social groups to be “all the same.” My research on prejudice has been funded by two Discovery Project grants from the Australian Research Council. In the first project, I identified cognitive and motivational factors that predict prejudice against “category-inconsistent” people such as migrants and counterstereotypical individuals. In the second project, I worked with lead investigator Dr Stefania Paolini to show that negative encounters with out-group members increase prejudice more than positive encounters decrease prejudice. My recent research is based in the area of social exclusion. Here, I’ve identified personality variables that predict migrants’ social exclusion, I’ve shown that the need for self-esteem motivates people to exclude out-group members from their in-group, and I’ve published several papers investigating working-class students’ exclusion from social life at university.

Teaching
I have won several awards for my teaching, including the University of Newcastle Faculty of Science and Information Technology’s (2014) Academic Staff Excellence Award, the Australian Government’s Office for Teaching and Learning (2013) Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, and the University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor’s (2011) Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

I have a total of 20 years of teaching experience at Cardiff University, UK, and the University of Newcastle, Australia. I have taught and co-ordinated small and large undergraduate courses from first-year through to fourth-year. I have supervised 59 final year student projects and three PhD students to completion. I am currently supervising three PhD students (.80, .80, & .30 supervision loading), one Professional Doctorate student (.20), and three Masters students (1.00, .30 & .20). My teaching topics relate to social psychology and include areas such as attitudes, the self, social influence, group processes, intergroup conflict, and cross-cultural social psychology. Based on student feedback surveys, students regard me as a well-organized teacher who explains things clearly, makes good use of examples and illustrations, and provides well-structured lecture and course material. I am also an innovative teacher. I have developed an award-winning collection of online guides that explain academic skills in psychology. During 2013 and 2014, I also presented a two-hour seminar titled “Introduction to Academic Publishing: A Seminar for Postgraduate Students” to students at four national and international universities, including the University of Newcastle, Australia, the University of Canberra, the University of Padova, Italy, and the University of Sheffield, UK.

The present research tested the hypotheses that (a) working-class students have fewer friends at university than middle-class students and (b) this social class difference occurs because working-class students tend to be older than middle-class students. A sample of 376 first-year undergraduate students from an Australian university completed an online survey that contained measures of social class and age as well as quality and quantity of actual and desired friendship at university. Consistent with predictions, age differences significantly mediated social class differences in friendship. The discussion focuses on potential policy implications for improving working-class students¿ friendships at university in order to improve their transition and retention.
