I’m a senior lecturer in the Department of Psychology, with experience of lecturing and course leadership in both online and on-campus university programmes.
My research tests and applies the principles of a neurological theory of personality called Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory, as a way of better understanding anxiety. These tests typically involve comparative neurological methods, using the electroencephalogram (EEG).
Other areas of interest for me include decision making, fear, personality, and behavioural prediction. Outside of research, I also enjoy studying consciousness and the history of psychology.
