Research Interest: It's my first year joining the lab as a PhD student. I'm generally interested in how cultures shape one's thinking and behaviors, especially on social relationship, perception of pain and suffering. I'm also interested in how immigrants are influenced mentally and physically during the process of cultural adaptation. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music (piano/guitar) and cooking food of different cultures.

Joshua Guyer

Year of Study: PhD 2

Advisor: Lee Fabrigar

Email: 9jg43@queensu.ca

Research Interest: Broadly speaking, my research interests lie within the domain of attitudes and persuasion. More specifically, I am engaged in several lines of research that explore how different aspects of voice affect attitude change. My primary research project explores the interplay between the content of a message and the affective qualities of voice used to express that message in a verbal fashion. In a nutshell, this can be summed up by the familiar adage: "it's not what you say but how you say it." Other research projects involve exploring the role of various hallmarks of vocal confidence in the persuasion process.
