I am a current first-year PhD student in Psychology at the University of Exeter, under the supervision of Associate Professor Lee Hogarth and Dr Andrew Livingstone.
My current research focuses on examining the effect of addiction framing on addictive behaviour and addiction beliefs. We are trying to determine a better way to approach those who need help with their substance abuse and to understand the cognitive mechanism behind it.
My past academic experience also covers selective attention in task-switching and endogenous control. I am very looking forward to applying the technics of selective attention to the study of health psychology.
Broad research specialism: alcohol dependence, framing, task-switching.
