I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the School of Applied Sciences; specifically in Psychology. I joined LSBU as an undergraduate in 2015 and upon completeing my undergrad I completed my Masters of Research at the University of Sussex. I returned as an hourly paid lecturer in 2018 and then began working as a graduate teaching assistant in September 2021 teaching on a range of psychology courses on both undergraduate and post-graduate psychology courses.
My area of interest is addiction, originally focused on recreational illicit drug use due to the prolific and overt recreational drug use I witnessed within the school community as a young person. This transitioned into focus on nicotine addiction and the motivations driving the use of e-cigarettes specifically. I am most interested in investigating these motivations in young non-smokers and also resistance to e-cigarettes in some adult smokers. I am currently in the first year of my PhD which applies a social norms framework to understanding decision making re. e-cigarette use in the populations mentioned above.
I have also worked previously with researchers from LSBU and UCL on differences between smokers and non-smokers attention to warning labels to investigate the effect of different health warning labels on e-cigarette packaging on attention in these groups.
