Quinn Poisson's Blog
I am currently a National Science Foundation Fellow completing my social psychology PhD degree. This means I get to study what affects people's behaviors in all kinds of different setting, and under different conditions.
Earlier in my graduate career I predominantly researched how aligning ourselves with a group can affect our behaviors--both in good and bad ways. I later took an interest in researching the role of testosterone, and I am currently collaborating with the business school. I am definetly interested in all aspects of human behavior!
Most recently, I have become interested in the role of psychology in video games. As I enjoy playing them, and I have always been interested in art and it's impact on people (my first degree is in photography), this type of research is right up my ally. My current primary interest is in toxicity--both general and sexual--and ways to redress it.
