Biography

I am a third year PhD student at the University of Sheffield, where I am supervised by Professor Matt Field and Dr Tom Stafford. Although based in the Department of Psychology, I also work alongside the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group in Sheffield’s School of Health and Related Research. In my PhD I am exploring the potential mechanisms that underlie behaviour change and recovery from addiction using computational models of value-based decision-making. Before starting my PhD, I obtained a BSc and MSc in Psychology from the University of Liverpool.
