Alison Green

I graduated with an Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Aberdeen, which spurred me on to consider further study in psychology. I was awarded a competitive SERC (now EPSRC) studentship to carry out my PhD research on the acquisition of complex skills in the Psychology Department at the University of Aberdeen. Whilst in Aberdeen, I co-founded a small consultancy company and carried out work in the oil industry, which included a fascinating stint on an oil platform in the North Sea.
