Marie-Pierre Fayant Assistant Professor at Paris Descartes University
My research deals with social cognition and self-regulation.
In one line of research, I examine the underpinnings of evaluative processes, and especially the determinants of assimilation and contrast in various domain like social comparison and the self (approach and avoidance, Fayant, Muller, Nurra, Alexopoulos, & Palluel-Germain, 2011; cooperation and competition, Colpaert, Muller, Fayant, & Butera, 2015), or spatial evaluations (Blaison, Fayant, & Hess, in press).
In a second line of research, I examine self-regulation to threatening situations like social comparisons with better-off (Muller & Fayant, 2010; see also Le Lec, Alexopoulos, Boulu-Reshef, Fayant, Zenasni, Lubart, & Jacquemet, 2017) or ostracism (Fayant, Muller, Hartgerink, & Lantian, 2014).
