Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the psychopharmacology of alcohol and other substance use. My current research reflects my interest in how alcohol hangover affects thought processes that underlie everyday behaviours. Specifically, I am interested in how hangover affects executive functions, such as our ability to inhibit behaviours, or manage emotions. As a PhD student, I am developing experience in laboratory studies in the field of human psychopharmacology.

Teaching interests

My teaching interests include core skills for undergraduate students, including developing critical arguments, essay writing, presentation skills, referencing, and debating controversial topics within psychology.

Other responsibilities

I am a champion for public engagement activities for PhD student. I have also created and manage a PhD student-led, peer support Wellbeing group within the Department of Psychology.
