Teaching in 2020
- as Course Coordinator and Lecturer
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Master's in Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience from Victoria University of Wellington. After completing my Master’s, I started working in the Centre for Science in Society; helping to coordinate the suite of online undergraduate courses. Since 2018 I have been working as an Assistant Lecturer in the Centre for Science in Society and am completing my PhD in Psychology alongside this position.
I am currently completing a PhD in Psychology. I am interested in a number of the cognitive processes that influence the interplay between science and people. I am particularly interested in the role of emotion in cognitive processes such as attention, memory, beliefs and decision making.
