Researcher in Drug Prevention
I am originally from Japan and came to this country in 1991. I developed an interest in psychology and gained a BSc from the University of Liverpool where I have recently also completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have been a researcher in drug prevention at the National Collaborating Centre for Drug Prevention (Liverpool John Moore University) for a year and co-authored several reviews on drug misuse in young people. I have also worked as an assistant psychologist at the Windsor Clinic, Alcohol Treatment Unit in Liverpool for approximately 3 years and at this point started a part-time Ph.D. in psychology looking at impulsivity in problem drinking.
