I am a postdoctoral researcher working on an ESRC-funded project: Bystander Project. The project explores British children's and adolescents' bystander responses to the hypothetical scenarios of the social exclusion of immigrants.
I am interested in exploring mechanisms promoting prosocial behaviour and social inclusion in educational settings. My research focuses on children and adolescents’ behavioural and hypothetical reactions as bystanders to bullying and social exclusion in intergroup and intragroup peer group contexts. I particularly examine how intergroup factors such as group membership, group norms, stereotypes and social-moral reasoning influence school-aged young people’s evaluations of and actual bystander reactions to bullying and social exclusion.
