Short CV

Gert-Jan Lelieveld graduated (cum laude) as a Research Master in Social and Organizational Psychology at Leiden University in 2008. In 2013, he successfully defended his dissertation on the interpersonal effects of emotions in negotiations. Currently, he works as an assistant professor at the department of Social and Organizational Psychology in Leiden.

Research

Gert-Jan developed two lines of research that examine interpersonal processes from a social psychological, social neuroscience, and developmental perspective.

One line of research focuses on the interpersonal effects of emotions. In his research he has shown that different emotional expressions have specific effects on the behavior of others. He studied the brain regions involved in the interpersonal effects of different emotions, and has shown that with increasing age children respond differently to the emotions of others.

The second line of research focuses on the victims, actors, and observers of social exclusion (ostracism). He examined which factors determine whether ostracism is considered a negative experience or not, using neuroimaging as well as behavioral measures. Besides that, he tries to fill an important gap in the literature by also focusing on the actors and observers of social exclusion. His goal is to combine and compare these different perspectives (of victims, actors, and observers) to create an integrated perspective on the consequences of social exclusion.

Besides these two main lines of research, he also investigates deception and lying, economic decision making, and moral behavior. His research also fits perfectly within the area of social neuroscience. He does not only use behavioral measures to answer his social psychological questions, but also physiological measures such as fMRI. He thus publishes in social psychological journals as well as social neuroscience journals. Together with colleagues, he founded the LIBC social hotspot (see link below) of the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition, an interfaculty center for interdisciplinary research on brain and cognition.
