Dr Caroline









I completed my PhD, Under the supervision of S. Craig Roberts, at the University of Stirling, investigating the role of fragrances and body odours in human interactions.

Since completing my PhD, I have undertaken a range of post-doctoral research positions.  I worked at Stirling University investigating the effect of make-up on attraction and self-confidence.  Following this I was employed by Edinburgh Napier University to set up a state of the art 4D imaging lab which is used to investigate the production and recognition of facial expressions and emotions.  Most recently, I was employed by the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University where I was investigating the effects of current state (hunger) and developmental history (deprivation) on behaviours such as impulsivity in humans. 

I have been a member of the Centre for Behaviour and Evolution at Newcastle University since 2016 and my broad research interests lie in the application of evolutionary theory to understanding human behaviour.  I work as a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Newcastle University.  I am happy to hear from students who share my research interests and would like to work with me.
