Dr Mathew Marques Lecturer, Psychology

Dr Marques uses social psychology to understand the role of psychological mechanisms (e.g., trust, conspiracy theories, ideologies) in the formation of attitudes towards socially contentious scientific research (e.g., genetically modified foods, vaccinations), and more broadly in science communication. He is also interested in the role of epistemological processes such as anti-intellectualism in the evaluation of emerging technologies, and how these and other values shape judgments of scientific actors. Mathew also researches the tall poppy syndrome, and the effects of differing status and aspects such as deservingness on attitudes towards tall poppies and underdogs. Dr Marques is also an expert in statistical analytic techniques such as multilevel modeling and various forms of structural equation modeling.

Mathew is the Communications Officer for the Society for Australasian Social Psychologists, and a member of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, and International Society of Political Psychology.
