My main research interests are reinforcement learning and decision making in humans, as well as the neurological basis for individual differences between people. These interests stem from my background in childcare and sports coaching. For my undergraduate dissertation I studied how gender and masculinity impact risk-taking under stress to investigate why people may act differently in response to physiological arousal. My postgraduate research has focused on links between noradrenaline and aspects of reinforcement learning, using pupil dilation as a measure of noradrenergic activity.
