This included research with recreational drugs users, women with anorexia nervosa, children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. 

At Kingston University I teach bio-psychology at undergraduate and postgraduate level, mental health and brain function and foundations of psychology.

Research

My research focuses on impulsive behaviour in populations with impaired impulse control such as licit and illicit drug users and individuals with dysfunctional eating behaviours. I am also interested in wider aspects of drug use and eating behaviours, including areas such as the role of social media, the non medical use of prescription drugs and cognitive enhancing drugs.
