Personal profile

Research Focus

My current areas of research interests include cognitive and emotional development.

I am a PhD candidate at Queen's University Belfast studying the development of relief, under the supervision of Prof. Teresa McCormack and Prof. Aidan Feeney. This is part of wider, interdisciplinary project, together with Dr Agnieszka Jaroslawska, Dr Sara Lorimer, Dr Sarah Beck, and Prof. Christoph Hoerl, investigating the nature and evolutionary functions of relief. Primarily, I am interested in whether there are separate developmental profiles for two different instances of relief.

Additionally, I previously worked as a research assistant on a multi-disciplinary project investigating the effectiveness of attention control training (ACT) in very premature babies.
