I am currently working as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Irina Baetu and Professor Nicholas Burns in the School of Psychology. I am interested in associative learning and how it interacts with attention. My research aims to combine various measures of attention (e.g. reaction time, detection thresholds, event related potentials) to investigate how humans process stimuli that are predictive or non-predictive of their outcomes. By using neutral, positive and negative outcomes it may also be possible to investigate how outcome valence can moderate the effect of predictive validity on cue processing. This research could be beneficial for understanding clinical disorders characterised by abnormalities in attention, such as addiction, anxiety and schizophrenia.
