Research interests

My research background lies in psycholinguistics, however current research interests broadly focus on looking at the relationship between individual differences in disgust sensitivity and phenomena such as social attitudes (especially stigma) and trypophobia (fear of clusters of holes/spots). In particular investigating overgeneralised disease avoidance (measured by pathogen disgust sensitivity) in relation to stigmatising attitudes towards mental health conditions (eg https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s40806-019-00208-x ) and mental health related symptoms in non-clinical samples (eg trypophobia https://psyarxiv.com/9vzt7/ ).

Dissertation supervision
Research projects at UG and PGT level typically align with my current research interests described above. Typically meetings follow the lab group approach (to create a more realistic research setting and facilitate a supportive mini-community of researchers). I support quantitative methodologies typically focused on online self-report measures.

Potential dissertation research projects include:
• Investigating the relationship between individual differences in pathogen disgust sensitivity and stigma towards mental health conditions
• Investigating the relationship between individual differences disgust sensitivity, ambiguity tolerance and political attitudes (e.g. to Brexit)
• Investigating potential predictors of Trypophobia severity
• Investigating the relationship between individual differences in impulsivity and disgust sensitivity and Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs – eg hair pulling disorder and skin picking disorder) symptoms in non-clinical samples
• Investigating the psychological predictors of covid-19 anxiety and safety behaviours
