Richard Crisp is a Professor of Psychology at the Aston Business School. He read Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford and carried out his doctoral research at Cardiff University. In 1999 he took up his first lecturing position at the University of Birmingham, then in 2007 took up his first Chair in the Centre for the Study of Group Processes at the University of Kent. After a three-year term as Head of School, in 2012 he was appointed Chair in Psychology at the University of Sheffield. He moved to his current position at the Aston Business School in 2014. Richard’s research has covered the full range of topics that comprise social psychology, from studies on the formation and reduction of prejudice, to the self and identity processes involved in interpersonal relations, from studies of mere exposure and attitude formation, to studies of social categorization. He has published this work in over 130 articles, chapters and books, including papers in American Psychologist, Psychological Science, Psychological Bulletin and Science. This work has been recognized with awards from scholarly societies including the British Psychological Society Social Psychology Mid-Career Prize and Spearman Medal. Together with Rhiannon Turner he received the 2011 Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (for the best paper of the year on intergroup relations). He is Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of Applied Social Psychology and former Deputy Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Research Board. He is an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and Fellow of the British Psychological Society.

She moved to her current position at Queen’s University Belfast in 2012.

This research has been published in journals such as American Psychologist, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and Psychological Bulletin, and has been funded by grants from the Economic and Social Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy, and the National Institute for Health Research. She is winner of the British Psychological Society award for Outstanding Doctoral Research Contributions to Psychology (2007) and the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology’s Robert B. Cialdini Award (2007) for contributions to field research in social psychology. Together with Richard Crisp she received the 2011 Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (for the best paper of the year on intergroup relations).
