Current Research



My research focuses on developing the theoretical understanding of the personality and with respect to applied issues in health and occupational psychology. Theoretically, I am interested in the relationship between personality and behavioural economics, the role of emotional processing with respect to decision making and the measurement of traits. From an applied perspective I am interested in understanding behaviour associated with blood and organ donation, health communications, risky health behaviours, symptom perception and the selection and training of medical students and qualified doctors.
