Experience

James received his BSc in physiology and psychology from Cardiff University in 2004. After working as a research assistant at Swansea University for a number of years, James returned to Cardiff to complete his PhD in psychology, awarded in 2012. James then worked as a lecturer for a number of years firstly in the College of Medicine at Swansea University and then in the Department of Psychology at Aberystwyth University before arriving at USW.

Research

I am interested in associative, causal and relational learning, and how these process are implicated in mental health. I am particularly interested in the role of instruction and learning in the development of anxiety.
