My research to date has focused on the effects of alcohol on perceptual cues of emotional expression and cognitive processes underlying alcohol consumption in social alcohol consumers. At present, my research interests are predominately centred on cognitive biases among social drug consumers or among individuals with a psychopathology. Task development among existing cognitive bias measurement being employed in the research literature such as the modified Stroop and the visual probe task are also another current area of research.
I graduated from the American University of Beirut in June 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences and a major in Psychology. I went on to complete a MSc in Research Methods in Psychology at the University of Bristol examining the effects of acute alcohol consumption on the perception of facial cues of emotion. My PhD examines the role of alcohol-related cues (simple, complex) on cognitive bias in social alcohol consumers.
