I am a current Honours student completing my thesis under the supervision of the Forensic and Clinical Cognition Lab. Initially, I was a placement student in the lab in 2019, before becoming a volunteer research assistant, where I assisted in ongoing data collection and organisation.
Through my experience in the lab, I developed an interest in an ongoing project investigating the link between PTSD and prospective memory, i.e. memory for future intentions. A primary issue in the literature is the conflicting results of acute and chronic stress on prospective memory performance. While some researchers have observed an enhancing effect, others have reported impaired performance. Subsequently, my Honours project aims to clarify this relationship.
