I am currently completing my Honours year in the Forensic and Clinical Cognition Lab. My Honours thesis aims to examine potential mechanisms of shared amplification. We are particularly interested in identifying whether engaging in a stressful experience with another person will intensify people’s subjective pain and stress about that overall experience as well as whether knowing and being close with the other person is a contributing factor to this shared amplification. This research has implications for understanding how stressful and traumatic experiences are remembered.
Aside from my studies I am an aerial artist and coach, passionate traveller and lover of all food, especially pizza.
