Research Affiliate, University of Sydney

I have recently completed my PhD in the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney. My research examined taste and smell perception, with an emphasis on wine expertise.

Prior to this, I completed a Bachelor of Science and Graduate Diploma in Science, also at the University of Sydney, majoring in Psychology. My fourth year thesis also examined wine perception. I'm also interested in various other research topics, including synaesthesia.

During my time at USyd, I taught extensively in research design and statistics in the School of Psychology and brought this expertise to my role as a Research Fellow in the Centre for Gambling Education and Research at Southern Cross University. I am tackling the vices one by one.
