Lily Fitzgibbon

Senior Research Fellow

 

Overview

I am a senior research fellow in the Children and Young People’s Mental Health (ChYMe) Research Collaboration. I investigate cognitive, behavioural and emotional responses to uncertain situations, including information seeking, decision making, and counterfactual thinking in children and adults. In my current postdoctoral position, I work with Professor Helen Dodd, investigating adventurous play as a mechanism for reducing risk of childhood anxiety.

I am an advocate of open scientific practices. I co-founded the University of Reading's ReproducibiliTea journal club. You can find my personal website here and my OSF site here.

When I am not working, I love having adventures - rock climbing, cycling, and packrafting.
