As part of Science and Religion: Exploring the Spectrum, I am working on Strand 4 of this project. This consists of a large scale survey of public perspectives regarding the relationship between evolutionary science and religion. My PhD was awarded in December 2015 and investigated how the age at which we learn words and concepts influences how quickly and accurately we process this information in adulthood. Since completing my undergraduate degree in 2007, I have also completed several service and training evaluations ranging across Health Psychology, Nursing, Pharmacy, Occupational Psychology and Clinical Psychology.
