Rochelle Cox, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Cognitive Science
"I enjoy studying cognitive science because it allows me to study fascinating and unusual topics such as belief formation and hypnosis. I use hypnosis to investigate mistaken beliefs and delusions.
One aspect of my work involves designing and conducting creative experiments to investigate issues that I feel passionate about. It is wonderful to travel to conferences where I can present my research findings and and meet others who share similar interests.
A highlight of my job involves developing my science communication skills, where I showcase my research to both colleagues and the wider community. Seeing other people become intrigued and excited about my research is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career."
