    (she/her/hers)
    University Position
    PhD student

    Interests

    My research interests are in Clinical Behavioural Neuroscience. Currently, I am working with Virtual Reality and Pavlovian-Instrumental Transfer to investigate the effects of threat on goal-directed and habitual learning in individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and OCD trait tendencies. This includes bespoke horror scenarios created for collaboration by BAFTA award-winning horror video games company Ninja Theory and biofeedback methods such as heart rate monitoring and salivary analysis for Alpha-Amylase to measure for stress.
