About Kate

Dr. Kate Muir’s research interests encompass two main areas: the social psychology of language, and social and personality influences upon aspects of autobiographical memory. Specifically, she has conducted research in face to face and computer mediated forms of human communication within the theoretical framework of communication accommodation theory, and examined social and personality influences upon communication behaviours.

She also has an interest in the influence of verbal emotional expression, social disclosure, listener behaviour and personality traits upon the Fading Affect Bias, which is a phenomenon of autobiographical memory thought to exist as a result of self-protective processes.

Currently her research as part of the csalsa project centres around how families understand the concept of cyber-security, and how cyber-security risk is negotiated and managed within the family home.
