I study the human sense of smell, in particular its social function. The central question is: How do smells affect our (social) behavior? To examine this, I integrate a variety of approaches, from psychology (affect, perception, behavior, psychophysiology) to neuroscience (fMRI), and more recently genetics and chemical analysis. I also study how far-reaching is the impact of smell is: How important is smell in romantic relationships and how does smell loss (the best predictor of a COVID-19 infection) affect quality of life?
