Principal Investigator

I’m a lecturer in the Department of Psychology, at Royal Holloway University of London, and an affiliated member of the Neuroscience of Mental Health group, at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL. I completed an MSc and a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, at University College London, before receiving a Fyssen Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at the École Normale Supérieure, in Paris.

I am currently funded by an ESRC New Investigator Grant.

You can find a more detailed CV on my website, as well as details on initiatives to promote Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Alexandra Hopkins

Postdoctoral Researcher

 

I’m a postdoc interested in how people attribute outcomes to causes and how that might relate to people with depressive symptoms. I’m also interested in mental health research generally in the field of Computational Psychiatry. Most of my work involves a combination of behavioural research, computational modelling (reinforcement learning, Bayesian modelling) and neuroimaging.  

 

I started as a postdoctoral researcher after completing my PhD in Computational Psychiatry at the Max Planck UCL Centre in London, where I studied uncertainty and how it relates to anxiety. Outside of the lab, you can find me under a tree in Clissold Park writing short stories.
