Peter is interested in quantitative approaches to psychological phenomena. He is predominantly interested in human decision-making, perception and validating psychological phenomena outside of laboratory settings.

He has worked on a diverse range of projects as both a research assistant and statistical analyst. These projects include identifying individual variation in pathogen disgust responses, exploring the impact of shift working on cognition  and establishing how many cortisol measurements are necessary for identifying adrenal insufficiency.

In addition to his interest in quantitative approaches to psychology, Peter is interested in using insights from psychology, economics and computer science to influence human behaviour in positive ways, such as nudging. Peter’s project at The Alan Turing Institute explores the relationship between perceptions of time and space with happiness.  The project aims to inform individuals, businesses and policymakers how to improve their urban wellbeing.
