Personal profile


Following my PhD (Sussex) I completed research at the University of Birmingham on an AERC (Alcohol Education Research Council) project examining factors important in alcohol consumption.  I joined the Psychology department at Portsmouth in 2005 and in addition to my own research I am involved in teaching on the undergraduate psychology degree and postgraduate MSc Health Psychology.

Research Interests

My research interests are centred on how our sensory system (mainly smell and taste) affect our behaviour on a unisensory and multisensory level.  One example of this is how our perception of alcohol is affected not merely by taste but also by auditory factors, which is important to understand as this influences the rate at which alcohol is consumed and thus intoxication.  More recently, I have conducted research that seeks to further understand the relationship between the chemical senses and the emotion of disgust.
