Nicola currently contributes to Core Topics in Psychology (PS4010), Secrets of the Brain (PS4018). Understanding the Mind (PS5017), Biological Psychology (PS6034) and is the Module Leader for the Cognitive Psychology for Conversion module (PS7312). She is particularly interested in the role of central obesity in elevating stress responsivity and enhancing a vulnerability to poor health and cognitive impairment, specifically, via the action of the stress hormone cortisol. Nicola is also interested in the psychology of paranormal belief, in particular, whether it is possible for unusual belief and superstitions to alter the appraisal of stressors and consequently, facilitate (or inhibit) coping in the face of challenge.
