My undergraduate degree was in Social Psychology and therefore, initially my interests in the subject were focussed primarily around social behaviour, however I gradually through my early postgraduate research posts and postgraduate studies shifted towards Clinical Psychology. After my degree I held a Research Assistant post in the International Gaming Research Unit (IGRU) within the Psychology Division at Nottingham Trent University. While a member of this research group I enrolled on an MSc Research Methods course and continued through to PhD level, with my thesis entitled “An Explorative Investigation of the Effects of Information Technology on Gambling and Gambling-Related Behaviours”. I began lecturing part-time at Nottingham Trent University from 2004 before taking a full-time post at the University of Lincoln in 2006.
I am module co-ordinator for the following modules: PSY1005M Foundations of Clinical Psychology (Level 1 30 CATS) PSY1006M Psychology Tutorial Programme (Level 1) PSY3017M Addictions (Level 3) I also lecture on a range of other undergraduate and postgraduate modules.
