Professor Benedict Jones

Psychology

Personal statement

My research investigates the factors that influence appearance-based social stereotypes.
 
I completed my PhD in Psychology at University of St Andrews in 2005 and was promoted to Professor in 2011 while at University of Aberdeen. I joined Strathclyde from University of Glasgow in May 2020.
 
My work has been funded by grants from the European Research Council and the ESRC. My current research is funded by the EPSRC and investigates how social stereotypes influence how we interact with artificial conversational agents, such as Alexa and Siri.
 
I am interested in supervising postgraduate research on any aspect of social stereotypes, mate preferences, or responses to social cues.
