Dr Miriam Koschate-Reis
Miriam’s research interests centre on intra- and intergroup processes in social and organisational contexts.
1) Social identity markers: Working with computer scientists at the Univeristy of Exeter, UCL and Imperial, she examines how the way we communicate – our linguistic style – provides clues to our identities in online texts.
2) Intergroup Contact: her work examines social interactions between members of different groups (e.g. work groups, disciplines, human-robot interactions) and effects on cooperation and helping behaviour.
3) Social influence: Miriam has also examined the transmission of behavioural change in social groups by studying the effects of group salience on the perseverance of a newly acquired behaviour.
