Current Research

Actively involved in two areas of research. Primary research program explores how the emotional state of an observer, and also the emotional significance of environmental information, influences the deployment of attention. Secondly exploring the experience of boredom, and individual differences that impact on susceptibility to boredom. Within these areas, I am focused on gaining a better understanding of basic psychological processes, as well as examining issues that relate more specifically to clinical psychology.
