Biography

I am an undergraduate student in Psychology at the University of York. Over the summer I completed a research internship at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Professor Karen Ersche at the Department of Psychiatry. I investigated the effects of temporal framing on delay discounting in cocaine addiction. My research interests lie in risk taking behaviour and decision-making in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. In the future I am hoping to complete an MSc and PhD in Neuroscience and specialise in addiction and mental health.
