Miriam Koschate-Reis

Miriam is a Lecturer in Social and Organisational Psychology at the University of Exeter. As part of the Being There project, she is looking at social influence in public places. More specifically, she examines whether synchronisation of subtle movements with other humans – face-to-face or via a robot platform – improves social cohesion, trust and cooperation, and under which conditions synchronised movement spreads from person to person.

This research ties in with her other research interests on intergroup prosocial behaviour, intergroup contact, and the longevity of synchronisation effects.
