Postgraduate Study

If you are interested in completing a PhD under my supervision, then please feel free to contact me to discuss options. My primary areas of interest are below, but I am also very happy to discuss related areas:

The Placebo Effect

  • Placebo analgesia and nocebo hyperalgesia
  • Placebo-induced side effects (including chemo-nausea)
  • Extinction of placebo and nocebo effects
  • Placebo effects in clinical trials

Associative Learning

  • Pavlovian-to-instrumental transfer
  • Conditioned compensatory responses
  • Learning and awareness

Some of the Scholarships for PhD students at the University of Sydney are listed here.
