Research Interests

Dr Phillips interests include mental health and psychological well-being, and cognitive models of behaviour, risk perception, and decision-making in applied contexts.  She is particularly interested in the relative influence of implicit (automatic, affective, fast, experiential) versus explicit (deliberate, rule-based, slow, rational) processes involved in regulating emotions, managing problems, or making decisions.
