Postgraduate Researcher


My research interests lie in the understanding more about how mindfulness works in relation to our cognitive processes. Mindfulness and mindfulness meditation are being widely used in clinical and wellbeing circles but as of yet there are no conclusive answers as to how or why mindfulness produces the range of results found in the clinical literature. My interests range across the cognitive spectrum but focus mainly on attentional processes.

Research interests

  • Attentional processes
  • Interoception
  • Mindfulness & cognition
  • Measuring Mindfulness

Thesis title
