I studied for my undergraduate degree at the University of Stirling as a mature student, and - following an MSc at the University of Edinburgh - returned to begin my PhD studies. During this time, I have contributed to a number of undergraduate modules across the 4-year programme, and also assisted in the design and delivery of a final year elective module.
My PhD work investigates the effects of experiencing frequent alcohol-induced memory blackouts on cognition in young adults. Specifically, I am interested in whether repeated binge-drinking which results in memory loss leaves a lasting deficit in memory performance, even after people have 'sobered up'.
