Professor Richard Crisp

Richard Crisp

I am a social psychologist specialising in the psychology of social influence and behaviour change. An enduring human problem is our susceptibility to cognitive bias, and with this a reduced capacity to realise our aims, goals and aspirations. My research identifies these errors of human judgment that stifle confidence and create barriers to behaviour change. Importantly, this knowledge is used to develop ways to counter cognitive bias, and effect positive change in peoples’ everyday lives. At the Aston Behavioural Science Laboratory we are developing a range of techniques that free the mind to innovate, explore, and maximise potential.
