I am a current second year PhD student in Psychology, at the University of Exeter, under the supervision of Associate Professor Lee Hogarth and Professor Celia Morgan. My research focuses on developing evidence-based brief interventions for preventing trajectories of alcohol/substance dependence from adolescence to emerging adulthood. During my undergraduate Psychology degree at Exeter, I investigated the effect of a breath counting technique on resilience to alcohol-seeking behaviours in response to noise induced stress, in student drinkers. As part of my PhD, I recently completed another study on reactive imagery training for young people who are at risk of developing alcohol dependence and hope to develop this further in the future.
Broad research specialism: alcohol dependence, prevention, intervention, adolescents, young adults.
