Neil Macrae


I acquired all my qualifications at Aberdeen [BSc (1987), PhD (1990), DSc (2006)]. Having moved around a bit, I returned to Scotland in 2005 and I’m currently Professor of Social Cognition at the University of Aberdeen. I’ve been fortunate to receive a bunch of career awards over the years (BPS Spearman Medal, APA Early Career Award, EAESP Jaspars Award, SESP Career Trajectory Award, EAESP Kurt Lewin Award, Royal Society-Wolfson Fellowship) and I’m a  Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE).
