About Fenja Ziegler
I received a BSc in Psychology from City University, London. My PhD work at the University of Nottingham was supervised by Peter Mitchell in Psychology and Gregory Currie in Philosophy. I was awarded my PhD in 2004 and stayed in Nottingham as a lecturer and research fellow. In September 2010, I moved to Lincoln University as a senior lecturer in Psychology.
