Merve Mollaahmetoglu

PhD student

 Washington Singer 304

 

Washington Singer Laboratories, University of Exeter, Perry Road, Prince of Wales Road, Exeter, EX4 4QG, UK

Overview

I am currently undertaking a PhD within the Psychopharmacology and Addiction Research Centre at the University of Exeter, under the supervision of Professor Celia Morgan and Professor Ed Watkins.

My PhD aims to understand the role of ruminative thinking in initiating and maintaining drug and alcohol use disorders and to explore rumination as a target of treatment approaches including psychological therapy and novel pharmacological treatment with ketamine.

The first study of my PhD focuses on rumination and alcohol use in hazardous and harmful drinkers; and investigate the effect of alcohol consumption on rumination in the laboratory. Moreover, my second study examines the relationship between daily rumination and subsequent affect, craving, drinking and risk of alcohol use disorders during everyday life using experience sampling.
