Research Subject & Interests

My current project is investigating the differences in attentional bias between nicotine dependent and non-dependent smokers. These non-dependent smokers do not appear to experience withdrawal effects due to a lack of nicotine dependence, but find it as hard to quit smoking as heavy, dependent smokers. Attentional bias is the automatic allocation of attention to particular stimuli and it related to experiencing craving. I am exploring attentional bias to see if it can contribute towards the difficulty in quitting for these light, non-dependent smokers. 

My research interests include;

  • Nicotine Dependence
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Substance Use
  • Quantitative Research Methods.
