Welcome to Psychology

From childhood to old age.

Psychology at Heriot-Watt focuses on providing
excellent learning experience combined with strong
and active research culture

I graduated from the University of Dundee with a BSc (Hons) degree in Biology in 2008. Following on from this, I went on to complete my PhD in social learning and social behaviour of brown tufted capuchin and common squirrel monkeys at the University of St Andrews under the supervision of Professor Andrew Whiten. After completing my PhD I stayed on at the University of St Andrews as a Research Associate studying conformity and later causal understanding, executive functions, and working memory in non-human primates and humans. I joined Heriot Watt University in 2015 as a Research Associate studying the social influences of prosociality.
