Tina Keil
PhD Researcher


Having worked in the electronics and IT industry for many years, I pursued my interest in psychology through the Open University alongside my professional career.

I am especially interested in how advances in (mobile) technology can be used to further research in the field of (social) psychology. My PhD project involved looking at everyday, mundane contact in public and private settings and included the development of a mobile application that enabled the measurement of intergroup contact in near-time. Being able to capture, discern and understand mundane, everyday micro-contacts in near-time can further inform our understanding of what types of contact contribute to a reduction in prejudice in intergroup contact events.

Currently, I am continuing development of mobile and web applications for use in various social psychology projects. I am also working part-time as a Media Manager for the European Association of Social Psychology (EASP).
