I am currently in my second year of study on the DPhil in Experimental Psychology. My doctoral thesis will be based on the topic of 'Individual differences in environmental sensitivity' - I am particularly interested in understanding the relationship between environmental stress and mental health outcomes - and the individual difference factors that moderate this relationship, including personality factors and genetic factors. I will use data from the CogBIAS longitudinal study (currently beginning wave two data collection) to investigate risk and resilience pathways to mental health outcomes in a cohort of 500 adolescents. I will also conduct behavioural and intervention experiments to investigate why some people are more responsive to the environment than others. I am expected to complete this DPhil project in September, 2018.
