Fhionna Moore
I’m a senior lecturer based in the School of Psychology at the University of Dundee. My research spans psychology (evolutionary, social, psychopathology, individual differences), biology (endocrinology and immunology) and behavioural ecology in order to model social, psychological and physiological mediators of behaviour.
