My research interests include cognitive biases and reasoning processes in the emotional disorders (including psychosis) and increasing access to psychological therapies, in particular, the role of information technology and computer-aided psychotherapies.
At present, I am involved in a number of projects exploring the development and delivery of computer-aided therapies in mental health, in particular I'm interested in the factors influencing the uptake, engagement and completion of computer-aided therapy programs. I am also involved in a number of projects exploring the role of rumination and reasoning biases in psychosis in collaboration with colleagues at Newcastle University.
