Hayley Jach

Supervisor: Dr Luke Smilie

I am a second year PhD student at the University of Melbourne. Under the supervision of Luke Smillie (University of Melbourne) and Alan Pickering (Goldsmiths, University of London), I am investigating the mechanistic bases of personality traits Extraversion and Openness/Intellect via a combination of cognitive-behavioural paradigms, physiological methods, and mathematical modelling. I'm a keen advocate of interdisciplinary research, best scientific practices, and science communication. Outside of research, I also love rock climbing, reading, and cats!
