I have a commitment and passion for developing Social Psychology as a discipline in ways that intersect with current social and political concerns, reveal the necessity of the psychological analysis of 'real world' issues and thus lead to programmes for social change.
I hope that my work speaks to, critiques and develops psychological concepts both at the heart of the discipline (identity, community, representation and resistance) and the more specialised fields of racism, multiculture and intercultural relations.

In the meeting, merging and clashing of representations and identities in everyday encounters we see ‘battles of ideas’ Moscovici (1998) that are consequential for local and national identities, intergroup relations, and construction and contestation of the ways things are, or should be.
Hence, following Moscovici, we can say that representations are ‘ways of world-making’ (Moscovici, 1988).
It is in these battles for meaning that social identities and social realities are constructed in ways that support or contest the status quo with regard to social relations and, therefore, systems of inclusion, exclusion and power (Duveen, 2001, 2008; Ichheiser, 1949).
These acts of social re-presentation are central to social and cultural practices (Jovchelovitch, 2007) for all groups and societies.
They carry possibilities for producing competing and so hybrid and polyphasic meanings.
Like most things in life, it's quality, not quantity that's important.
Here at e Harmony we believe there's a better approach to online dating than being bombarded with profiles and pictures.
We think the dates our members go on should be amazing, memorable occasions.
The co-existence of competing and contradictory forms of knowledge demands dialogue, debate and sometimes resistance in the process of the ideological construction of realities.
There is an everyday politics at stake in processes of identity and representation, particularly in their points of connection.
