Research aims to develop an understanding of the way people in Malaysia are affected and respond to psychological, emotional and behavioural problems. The research adapts psychological interventions and services that are known to be effective in other countries to the Malaysian context and test their effectiveness. Specific areas of interest include post-traumatic stress disorder, special educational needs and making lifestyle changes to improve outcomes for patients with coronary heart disease.

Research explores technology enhanced learning in formal (e.g., classroom) and informal settings (e.g., museums, science centres, field trips) – mainly, but not exclusively – in school-aged children, in areas such as science, mathematics and literacy. There is a particular focus on collaborative learning and in the development of collaboration in children.
Our research focusses on behaviour, cognition, and individual and intercultural differences in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We study the three cognitive theories in ASD (Executive Functioning, Theory of Mind, and Weak Central Coherence). We aim to compare data from the UK to data from Malaysia, and study whether there are intercultural differences in ASD characteristics (both in individuals with, and without ASD), attitudes towards ASD, and the relation between task and questionnaire data.

Research aims to understand how people make sense of others’ emotions and how our emotions, in turn, influence our behaviour and strategies for devising effective communication strategies for individuals and groups. Specific areas of interest include investigating phenomenon such as emotional contagion, regulation, stereotyping and their consequences for social interaction. Investigation methods include using a combination of traditional and neuroimaging techniques (e.g., eye-tracking, ERPs and acoustic analysis). The research is mostly – but not exclusively – informed by social identity theory and derivatives of this perspective.

Our research involves using evolutionary theory to shed light on the human mind and behaviour. We are particularly interested in the kinds of relationships people have with family vs. non-relatives, and whether this varies across cultures. In addition, we are interested in human sex differences.
