Thèmes de recherche

My main research interest focuses on the way context influences people´s evaluation of objects. In particular, I study how people evaluate objects located in an affective force field where things influence other things as a function of distance. For instance, I blend evaluative judgment theories from social cognition and psychophysics to understand how locations that elicit strong affective reactions – like an unsafe housing block or a nice public park – influence people´s evaluation of the surroundings.

Other research interests:
– Impression of groups (social groups, neighborhoods, etc.) knowing only a few elements (a few group members, a few locations, etc.)
Affective empathy
– Psychophysiology
– Implicit social cognition
