    About Stephen Sharman

    Steve gained a BSc in Psychology from the University of East London where he began working in the field of gambling disorders. His research into decision-making strategies in problem gamblers started during an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL. Steve gained his PhD from the University of Cambridge, where his thesis investigated cognition and decision making in both regular and pathological gamblers. Steve’s current research looks at multiple facets of gambling behaviour including pathways into gambling in treatment seeking populations, predictors of treatment outcome, the relationship between gambling and homelessness, and the effects of specific within-game constructs on gambling behaviour.
