I am a faculty member in Laurier’s Social Psychology program. I study the forces at play during interpersonal interaction, including a variety of controlled and automatic processes underlying people's dominance and friendliness behaviors. I am currently exploring how people’s moment-to-moment behaviors become entrained or synchronized to each other over time.  I am also intrigued by the processes contributing the individual differences in hypnotic ability.  My research interests in personality and social interaction apply well to clinical circumstances involving psychopathology and therapeutic processes, as well as to everyday interpersonal interactions. My research has been funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). 

3-D Demonstration of Interpersonal Complementarity During Interactions
A brief demonstration shows the type of data that can be collected using our joystick monitor software using 3-D rotations to reveal the data structures.  To see this 3-D demonstration, click on the first bullet in the left-hand column of this webpage and follow the instructions for:

(1) downloading and watching the movie (for Windows or Macintosh computers) or
(2) downloading and running the Powerpoint presentation (for Windows-based computers only).
