Lecturer in Psychology, Centre for Innovation in Mental Health, University of Southampton

Dr Emma Palmer-Cooper is a Lecturer in Psychology within the Centre for Innovation in Mental Health. My research primarily focuses on self-awareness in relation to mental health and related thought processes, psychological wellbeing, and creativity. I have a focus on developing digital interventions (eHealth) for mental health support, and understanding user attitudes towards AI.

I am also interested in Public Engagement, involving patients and the public in the design and communication of psychological and healthcare research.
