Elaine Fox is Professor of Psychology and Head of the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. A leader in research on the role of cognitive mechanisms in mental health across the lifespan, Professor Fox's work focuses on the nature of human emotions and why people respond differently to adversity and success.
Professor Fox studied neuroscience and psychology at University College Dublin and remained there as a research associate until 1988. Following a five-year lecturing appointment at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, Professor Fox returned to the University College Dublin as a Senior Lecturer for one year, before moving to the University of Essex, where she remained until 2013. In 2000, Professor Fox was made Professor of Cognitive Psychology & Brain Science, and in 2007 was elected Head of the Department of Psychology and the Centre for Brain Science for a four-year term.
In 2013, Professor Fox was appointed Professor of Psychology and Affective Science at the University of Oxford where she founded and directed the Oxford Centre for Emotions & Affective Neuroscience (OCEAN) with funding from an ERC Advanced Investigator Award. She was also elected to a Fellowship of University College, one of Oxford's oldest colleges. The OCEAN group integrated molecular genetics, cognitive psychology and neuroscience to deepen our understanding of human resilience. Under the leadership of Professor Fox, the OCEAN lab group has conducted seminal work revealing that biases in our attention, interpretation and memory can shape both psychological functioning generally as well as how we respond to stressful life events such as illness and challenging work environments. Professor Fox has used this mechanistic understanding to develop cognitive training interventions that aim to improve the way people cope with stress and mental health issues across their lives.
In October 2019, Professor Fox was appointed the United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) Mental Health Networks Impact and Engagement Coordinator. In this capacity, she has facilitated engagement between eight UKRI-funded mental health networks, to progress research themes such as inequalities in accessing care, social isolation, student mental health and the value of local communities. In February 2022, Professor Fox moved to the University of Adelaide in South Australia to take up the role of Head of School of Psychology.
To date, Professor Fox has published over 180 academic papers in peer-reviewed journals or edited volumes, 5 technical reports on commissioned research, one major monograph/textbook Emotion Science (2008) and two popular science books, 'Rainy Brain Sunny Brain' (2012), and Switchcraft: How Mental Agility Can Transform Your Life (2022).

Professor Fox is interested in the nature of human emotions and why people differ so much from each other in how they react to similar environmental situations. A current research focus of hers is cognitive and affective flexibility and how these fundamental mechanisms affect psychological health and wellbeing.
In a recently completed programme of research led by Professor Fox and funded by a European Research Council Advanced Investigator Award - The CogBIAS project - the cognitive and genetic mechanisms that underpin why some people flourish and others struggle were investigated. In a longitudinal study with over 500 Oxfordshire adolescents, Professor Fox and her team found that certain combinations of subtle cognitive biases are linked to emotional vulnerability on the one hand, and resilience and mental wellbeing on the other. They also found that certain 'polygenic risk scores' can affect the sensitivity with which people pick up emotional cues from the environment.
In her recently appointed role as Mental Health Networks Impact and Public Engagement Coordinator for the UK Department of Research and Innovation (UKRI), Professor Fox has commenced working with eight mental health networks to change the mental health research landscape. With a coordination team from the McPin Foundation, Mental Elf, and Sixth Sense Media, Professor Fox is working with the networks to ensure that mental health research includes multidisciplinary teams, including people with expertise from lived experience of mental health problems, to help generate a new mental health science that genuinely makes a difference to people's lives.

I have taught a wide range of courses in Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Affective Science, Experimental Psychopathology, Psychophysiology, and Psychopharmacology, in a number of Universities around the world: University College Dublin, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, University of Essex, and the University of Oxford. My classes have varied from small group tutorials of 2-3 individuals up to lecturing to large numbers of students (600 +) on mainstream courses.
I have also taught at the postgraduate level, and directly set up and taught a post-graduate MSc course in Affective Science and Psychopathology at the University of Essex. I established a course on 'How to Get Published' for PhD students in every discipline at the University of Essex and have presented the following workshops:
- What a Reviewer Looks For
- What an Editor Looks For
- How to Get Funded in the Biomedical Sciences
