About me

Jet is an experimental psychologist conducting randomised controlled trials in the lab and field to improve health and wellbeing on a population level.

Having graduated from the University of Glasgow, Jet holds an MRes and PhD in Psychology from the University of York, and has conducted research at Kyoto University, and as part of Public Health England’s Behavioural Insights Team before joining the LSE.

Currently she is focused on how time affects decision making and behaviour. Her research shows that the weekly cycle influences our risk-taking behaviour, with serious consequences for health care, crime, economic and political settings. In her research, Jet maps these consequences and looks to see how we can use this knowledge to make changes for social good.

As a separate interest, Jet researches faces. Her PhD focused on understanding embodied cognition, first impressions and attribution errors using hyper-realistic face masks, and the dangers of hyper-realistic masks in international security.
