I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Organisational Psychology. I joined the AMBS faculty in January 2012.

My research focuses on social relationships in the workplace, particularly how people influence the emotions of those around them and the 'darker' side of relationships (e.g., bullying, aggression). I have published in a range of organisational psychology, management, and social psychology journals, and co-edited a popular science book about emotions. I am an Action Editor at European Journal of Work and Organisational Psychology and Journal of Applied Social Psychology, a Consulting Editor at Journal of Organizational Behavior (and formerly of Human Relations), and a Trustee of the Richard Benjamin Trust grant board. Chartered by the British Psychological Society, I am also a member of the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology, the Academy of Management, and the Association of Psychological Science.
