About Susan Chipchase

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.
