My name is Sam Parsons. I’m a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of in Experimental Psychology at Oxford University. I am in the Oxford Centre for Emotion and Affective Neuroscience, aka OCEAN (I need to write the full name or people assume that my lab works in zoology). Just in case you’re here for the cat, this ginger monster is called Beau.
As well as investigating cognitive-affective processes implicated in adolescent worry, I try to do my own small bit for the improvement of psychological science. Sometimes this is promiting open and reproducible research practices; others it is frustrating others by highlighting the importance of routinely estimating and reporting the reliability of our measurements.
