About me

Broadly speaking, I am interested in individual differences in conscious experience.

I have research interests in creativity, arts and health, schizotypy and anomalous experiences. My current research projects are exploring: 1) anomalous experiences and mental health; and 2) artistic involvement and well-being.

I teach on a variety of modules, focusing on individual differences, mental health and consciousness. I am module leader for The Arts and Mental Health (level 3), Psychology in Action (level 1) and Identities in Psychology (level 2). I am the Level Two Programme Leader for Psychology.
