Personal profile

Biography

I graduated from the University of St Andrews in 2010 with a MA in Psychology. I then completed my graduate studies working with Ines Jentzsch in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of St Andrews. After completing my PhD in cognitive neuroscience I became a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto with Michael Inzlicht. During my postdoctoral years I was also a visiting scholar at the Department of Psychology at the University of New Mexico. I started as a Lecturer in the Division of Psychology, School of Social Sciences in September 2017.  

Research

My research focuses on the psychology and neuroscience of self-regulation. I explore how people overcome set-backs, conflicts, and unwanted impulses in favour of both short and long term goals. To answer these questions I draw evidence from a range of methodological approaches, including behaviour, phenomenology, and psychophysiological signals arising from both the central and peripheral nervous system.
