Angharad Williams

Senior Lecturer


Staff Group(s)


Senior Lecturer in Psychology (Cognitive Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience).

Career overview

Dr Angharad Williams (hear my name) joined NTU Psychology as a senior lecturer in September 2021. Prior to this Angharad was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Leipzig, Germany), and at Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) (Wales, UK). She completed her BSc in Applied Psychology and PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at Cardiff University.

Research areas

Angharad's research has primarily focused on how we construct event representations (event memory, perception, and imagination).

Areas of interest include:

  • episodic memory
  • autobiographical memory
  • scene perception
  • schema-based memory
  • future thinking
  • pro-environmental behaviour
  • menstrual cycle

External activity

Ad hoc reviewer for: Journal of Neuroscience, Nature Sustainability, Frontiers in Psychology (Sections: Psychopathology, Cognition), Neuropsychologia, Brain and Neuroscience Advances, Memory and Cognition, Neuroscience Letters
