Personal profile

General

Head of Psychology and Audiology

Research Interests

I am an experimental cognitive psychologist by background. Most of my research is on judgement and decision-making. In recent years, I have focussed on surrogate decision-making (DMfO), behavioural addiction and impulsivity. Other research interests include: implicit learning and categorization, episodic memory, second-language acquisition, and pro-social behaviour.
