Professor Sonia Bishop

Professor of Psychology 1968 (Psychology)

Professor of Psychology 1968 (Trinity Inst. of Neurosciences (TCIN))

I am a computational clinical and experimental psychologist and neuroscientist. I use a combination of computational modelling, functional neuroimaging and experimental methods to investigate altered cognitive and brain function in anxiety and depression. I trained at Oxford University (BA in Experimental Psychology), the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London (PhD in clinical psychology), Cambridge University and the MRC CBU (postdoc) and held a tenured faculty position at UC Berkeley before coming to Trinity College Dublin.
