My research focuses on a range of topics relating to social categorization and memory. Current projects investigate (1) the influence of thought suppression on self-construal (including self-perception and behaviour), (2) the effect of construal level on various aspects of event memory, (3) the roles of associative and propositional memory in updating person impressions, (4) the consequences of perceiving social exclusion for how social relationships are represented in memory, and (5) the mechanisms underlying priming effects on behaviour.
