Personal profile


I gained my BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc in Forensic Psychology at the University of Portsmouth, where I also completed my PhD in Psychology under the supervision of Professor Claire Nee and Dr Zarah Vernham. My PhD research involved using virtual reality to study the decision-making and behaviour of residential burglars, with a particular emphasis on the development of expertise.
