My research area of interest is social psychology, specifically looking at the neurobiological mechanisms that underpin social interactions.

I am currently interested in the role of Oxytocin in human behaviour, in particular how it is involved in several categories of social relationships: generic social relationships, parent-offspring relationships, and pair bond relationships. My research is designed to investigate the different effects of Oxytocin, if any, between these categories.
