Personal profile


I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Dundee in 2015. I then pursued a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at Queen's University Belfast, graduating in 2019. Since January 2019 I have been working as a Research Fellow in the School of Psychology at QUB. 

Research Interests

My doctoral project explores time and causality in cognitive development. My specific focus is how our perception of time is influenced and altered by our beliefs about cause and effect, and our own involvement, and how this changes over the lifecourse.
