Keywords: social and experimental psychology, psychology of religion, religious cognition, social cognition
For the Science and Religion: Exploring the Spectrum project (SRES), I am investigating the psychological processes contributing to people’s identification with religion and/or science and their perceptions of the relationship between science and religion.
In addition to my contributions to the SRES Spectrum project, I am leading the “Gods in Minds: God-Complexity and the Multiple God-Aspects Framework” project.  This project applies social cognitive research (how we think about ourselves and other people) in order to better understand how people think about God.
