Lecturer in Psychology, University of East Anglia

Jo is primarily interested in the interactions between sleep and emotional responding. Specifically, she is interested in how poor sleep may contribute to the development of mental health problems during adolescence, through disruptions in emotional processing. She is also interested in how sleep and emotional processing can influence resilience in extreme environments, and how changes in sleep across the menstrual cycle can influence emotional wellbeing.

Jo holds a PhD from the University of Reading, investigating measurement and individual differences in the regulation of positive emotions (2016), an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from Birkbeck College, University of London (2011) and BSc in Psychology from University of Bath (2005). She is also a member of the Sleep Research Society, British Sleep Society and the APA Society for Teaching in Psychology.
