Sam Royle

I am the resident psychology technician at the University of Salford, having joined the department in November of 2015. Prior to this I Graduated from a BSc in Forensic Science & Psychology (Dual Hons) in 2012, and received a distinction for an MSc in Psychology in 2014, both from Keele University.

My MSc research examined explanations of hangover severity variability (no, it isn’t just how much you drink!) utilising a broad approach that incorporated biological, psychological, and social theories and a mixed method design.

I am, by necessity, the ‘jack of all trades’ within the department, supporting staff and student research in a wide variety of areas and utilising various equipment, such as eye-trackers and functional near-infrared spectroscopy systems.
