Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the psychopharmacology of alcohol and tobacco use; specifically I am interested in the cognitive and neurobiological mechanisms that underpin addictive behaviours. My current research reflects my interests in health behaviours and initiating behavioural change through targeting implicit cognitions. As a researcher I have extensive experience in laboratory studies and large clinical trials in the field of human psychopharmacology. I am passionate about public engagement and science communication.
