Personal profile


Ana-Maria Bliuc is a social and political psychologist who joined Psychology at the University of Dundee in 2019. She has a PhD in Psychology from the Australian National University, and prior to her current appointment she held academic positions in Australia at Western Sydney University (2016-2019), Monash University (2012-2016), and the University of Sydney (2006-2012). 



Her research examines how people’s social identities influence their behaviour in a range of contexts including health, environmental (climate change), and socio-political (collective action and social change). More recently, she has focused on research on online communities looking at how collective identities and behaviours are shaped through online interactions. This research has been conducted in online political communities (mostly far-right and white supremacist) and online health communities (recovery from addiction).
