Homonymous hemianopia is the commonest form of visual disorder following stroke or head injury. In this study the PhD student will develop and evaluate an eye movement based compensatory therapy making use of the range of oculomotor recording equipment and the driving stimulator based in the Department of Psychology at Kingston University, London. Depending on student interest and patient availability, it may be possible to test patients with Hemispatial Neglect.
Please contact me if you are interested in conducting research in eating disorders and dysfunctional eating in the general population. Areas include (but are not limited to):
I am also open to other research topics in clinical and health psychology more broadly, such as illness representations and coping. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your research idea.
My research interests are in developmental psychopathology including school and sibling bullying, the long-term outcomes following prematurity and the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) amongst children of war and refugees. I am also open to other research topics in clinical and developmental psychology.
Please get in touch if your PhD proposal is relevant to the following topics:

The PhD project explores the effects of exercise and electrical brain stimulation on food-related cognitions, appetite, and energy intake, as well as the underlying neurobiological mechanisms using EEG, hear-rate variability, and biological measures. The project will involve works with staffs across the psychology department and sport science group at Kingston.
