o Broadly, my research falls into two areas: the interplay between various dimensions of emotion (e.g., arousal) and reasoning and decision-making, and determinants of bias in judgements of future task performance. In both areas, I have published papers and secured competitive research grant funding from bodies such as the ESRC. These outputs have come from collaborations with university researchers at national level and international level and healthcare professionals in the NHS. One of my current NHS-collaborative projects (funded by a grant from the BU Fusion Investment Fund) examines counterfacual thinking among people experiencing depression. Other projects include the impact of probabilistic reasoning principles on predictions of task duration and the effect of patient complications on surgeons' well-being, decision-making and professional performance. My teaching principally focuses on judgement and decision-making, problem-solving, thinking and reasoning, emotion and cognition, and research methods and statistics.
