As director of the Science of Imagination Laboratory, Davies explores computational modelling and artificial intelligence applied to human visual imagination.

Harasymchuk is available to speak to journalists about relationship topics, including maintaining passion in long-term relationships and shared leisure in intimate relationships (e.g., date nights).

Her research explores how people maintain happy relationships (e.g., dating, marital, friendship) and the associated challenges. One line of Harasymchuk’s research focuses on relational boredom, how people come to be bored in their relationships, the effects that boredom has on the relationship and how people cope. Her second line of research centres on the engagement of novel couple activities and people’s expectations for excitement in relationships. Additionally, she has research related to different types of love, including compassionate love, as well as friendship maintenance.
