Tina F. 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 reserach in the field of (social) psychology. My PhD project involved looking at everyday, mundane contact in public and private spaces and the development of a mobile application that enabled the measurement of intergroup contact in near-time. It is hoped that this will ultimately help to identify which types of group level interactions between social groups are most effective in maximising social and economic benefits, as well as in promoting wider change within the respective communities.
