Charlotte Booth


Postdoctoral Research Associate


I am currently in my final year of study on the DPhil in Experimental Psychology. My doctoral thesis is 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 and genetic factors.

I have worked on the CogBIAS Longitudinal Study for the past five years and was involved as a research assistant in setting this up. The study uses a cognitive and genetic approach to investigate risk and resilience pathways associated with mental health outcomes in adolescents. Therefore I have ample experience in the research process, including designing a study, programming experimental tasks, recruiting participants, data collection in schools and disseminating research findings. 

I am expected to complete my DPhil in September 2018 after which I would like to continue working on research projects with a particular focus on improving the lives of young people both within and outside of the school environment.
