Matt is a social psychologist studying prejudicial ideologies and intimate relationships. His research programme focuses on the individual, developmental and societal factors that influence the functioning of romantic relationships, including social support, interpersonal aggression, and how perceptions of others can be biased. Matt's research tests how sexist stereotypes are not simply a factor linked to societal differences between men and women, such as representation in government, but also function to maintain gender inequality by influencing romantic relationships.
