Dr Travis Proulx
Senior Lecturer, School of Psychology, Cardiff University
Dr. Travis Proulx is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Cardiff University. He is an existential psychologist studying our psychological response to absurdity. In collaboration with others, he has developed the Meaning Maintenance Model – a discipline-spanning framework that offers an integrated account of inconsistency compensation phenomena, more broadly. His recent work uses pupillometry to examine the physiological arousal (‘the feeling of the absurd’) that results from inconsistent experiences and that motivates compensation efforts.
