I am a first-year Clinical PhD student at Flinders University. I completed Honours in the Forensic and Clinical Cognition Lab, investigating the amplification of shared stressful experiences.
My current research aims to investigate the mechanism behind shared amplification and the circumstances under which shared amplification occurs. I am particularly interested in understanding how stressful and traumatic events are experienced and remembered differently when shared with another person compared to when experienced alone. Given that people often experience traumatic events with others, this research has clinical implications for the development of and treatment for mental health conditions such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
Aside from my studies I am an aerial artist and coach, passionate traveller and lover of all food, especially pizza.
