Social and personality psychology
My research
My research interests are at the interface between social psychology and personality psychology. In particular, I am interested in the question of which characteristics of the perceiver influence how targets are perceived. From this perspective, I have particularly studied the topic of mate choice. As a starting point to derive hypotheses about which properties of the perceiver and target are relevant, I use theories from an evolutionary perspective.
