Simone Schnall is a Reader in Experimental Social Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge, where she is also Director of the Body, Mind and Behavior Laboratory and a Fellow of Jesus College. She combines insights and methods from social psychology and cognitive science to explore how thoughts and feelings interact, and to understand how people make what seem at times surprising decisions about other people and about physical properties. For instance, she has studied the role of bodily influences in moral judgments and perceptions of the spatial environment. She is currently working on judgments and decisions in moral and legal contexts, perceptions of the physical environment, and risky behaviors in finance. She has served as associate editor of Social Psychological and Personality Science, and as a consulting editor for Perspectives on Psychological Science.
