I joined the University of Lincoln as a Lecturer in early 2010, after completing a PhD in experimental psychology investigating the influences of emotion on memory, at the University of Nottingham in 2009. In between my undergraduate studies and PhD I gained experience of research in a variety of clinical, medical and occupational settings.
I am module convenor for Cognition (Level 2), part of the module team for Sleep, Emotion and Cognition (Level 3) and for Research Skills (Level 2). I also supervise final year dissertation projects and have tutorial groups. In addition, I organise the School Seminars for the School of Psychology.
