About

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in social psychology at the School of Psychology, University of Queensland. My research focuses on the function of aesthetic judgments and their role in morality. Specifically, I am interested in the link between ugliness judgments and the disease-avoidance system, the role of beauty and ugliness judgments in moral standing attributions, as well as the psychological mechanisms underlying the Beauty-is-Good stereotype and the stigmatization of people with facial differences. I primarily work with Prof. Jolanda Jetten, Prof. Brock Bastian and Dr. Katharine Greenaway
