Ross Hollett worked for the University of Western Australia while completing his PhD from 2010 until 2015. This has involved teaching across almost all the undergraduate Psychology units offered at UWA. His PhD investigated the role of alcohol craving on decision-making using traditional and novel forms of risk assessment.
Ross is currently using eye tracking technology to understand how certain types of media (namely video games and pornography) influence real world attitudes and behaviour. He also conducts research on substance use and risk taking behaviour. Ross is a member of the Cognition Research Group at Edith Cowan University.
