I received my B.Sc. from York University in 1991, M.A. from the University of Western Ontario in 1993, and Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Western Ontario in 1997. I then became a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Cardiff University in 1997, where I have been a Professor since 2004.

My research focuses on social values (e.g., equality, freedom, helpfulness), attitudes, and emotional processes.
