Research Interests

Danielle is a social psychologist whose research focuses on intergroup relations, intergroup conflict and social change and is closely associated with social identity theory.  Her current programme of research has two main branches - the first examines the relationship between legitimacy beliefs and social change and the second focuses on the impact of intergroup structures on intergroup emotions and subsequent intergroup behaviours.  With Drs John Levine and Michael Hogg, she is the managing editor of the Encyclopedia of Group Processes and Intergroup Relations published by SAGE.  Additionally, with Dr Michael Hogg she is co-editing a book on Extremism and the Psychology of Uncertainty published by Blackwell.
