Social and Organisational Psychology

The Social and Organisational Psychology research group is a multidisciplinary research group.

We employ a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods in the field and in the laboratory to investigate complex psychological relationships between individuals, groups, and cultures (e.g., family and group members, organisational units and broader organisations, social and cultural contexts). 

The group includes researchers who specialise in social and cross-cultural psychology (e.g., identity, prejudice, discrimination, and intergroup emotions); organisational psychology (e.g., leadership, safety culture, organisational change, and selection); and personality psychology (e.g., psychometrics, morality, resilience, and stress).  

The Social and Organizational Psychology research group has a 'basic psychology' arm with a solid track record of highly cited research publications and competitive research grants and an 'applied psychology' arm with an established profile of research consultancies and industry engagement. The group collaborates extensively with other members of the School, enjoys a large number of international research collaborations, and offers research supervision to students from a variety of areas.
