No ISP in Fall 2021 :(

Sunday, June 27th, 2021

Small announcement: I’m probably not going to take any Independent Study students this coming Fall semester, 2021.¬† I really like running ISPs with good students, but this past semester I burned myself out trying to run four at once (plus a masters thesis or two), and I need to sit down and write some papers.

This really sucks, but I’ve learned that trying to help people out with ISPs, and then not being able to do them as well as I’d like, sucks even more.

New article in JBTEP!

Sunday, June 27th, 2021

A new article of mine has been published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry!¬† It’s called Biased probability estimates in trait anxiety and trait depression are unrelated to biased availability, and it reports a study I ran in England a couple of years ago with my old friend Dinkar Sharma.¬† You can access a preprint via the link below (or by emailing me and asking for one!).

This is now the second article I’ve published on judgement biases in anxiety and depression, which has become my main research interest over the last few years.¬† I have a whole bunch of very interesting datasets sitting on my desktop, so hopefully you’ll see a few more articles about this from me before the end of the year!¬†
