I teach in the Department of Psychology, leading modules throughout the undergraduate curriculum on Psychological Research Methods and Statistics.
My research is into the impact of naturally occurring sleep disruption on cognitive functioning in adults. This focuses primarily on healthy people who could sleep well but are prevented from doing so due to disturbance by cohabitees. So far, this has included partners of people with Parkinson's disease and parents of babies and young children. I also have an interest in sleep in clinical conditions and am currently working with a research group (SPaRG) at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath, looking into sleep patterns associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
I write revision guides, articles and text-books for AS, A level and undergraduate psychology students.
