Bernice teaches across all years of the undergraduate Psychology course and on one MSc module.
Prior to her role at NTU, Bernice held a postdoctoral position at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London. She also completed a MRC funded PhD studentship assessing the impact of environmental noise on cognitive performance in psychosis at the IoPPN.
Bernice is interested two broad topics:
1) how stressors and individual differences affect cognitive performance
2) improving functional outcome in individuals with schizophrenia.
