About us

The Social Emotions and Equality in Relations (SEER) research group is a group of social and personality psychologists who are primarily concerned with research that supports and sustains positive interpersonal relations, equality, generous inclusion, and civil society. 

To do so, we research the interplay of emotions with personality, cognition and behaviour.

Throughout our diverse projects, we consistently aim to bring an empirical understanding of social psychological dynamics to bear on vital social and scientific questions.

In these projects, we are researching and intervening with diverse people across the lifespan, across generations, and across cultures.

We meet fortnightly to discuss research-in-progress and related issues, and our members contribute almost all of the teaching to the MSc in Social Psychology.
