Personal Statement:

I hold a BSc in Psychology from the University of Sheffield and a PhD from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. Prior to starting a Lectureship at the University of Leicester in 2012, I held various postdoctoral research and teaching positions at the University of Reading, Queen’s University Belfast and University College London.

My research interests centre on judgment and decision making and reasoning in adults and children, including counterfactual thinking (‘if only’ thoughts) and causal reasoning. Together with a background in deductive reasoning dating back to my PhD research, this research feeds into investigations of online risk taking and the relationship between reasoning and mathematical abilities.

My research has been supported by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS), the Leverhulme Trust, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Experimental Psychology Society, and the Leicester Judgment and Decision Making Endowment at different career stages.
