Dr Peter Moseley

Assistant Professor

Department: Psychology

I joined the Psychology Department at Northumbria University in 2019 as a Vice Chancellor's Senior Research Fellow, where I conduct research into psychosis and psychotic-like experiences. Specifically, I aim to understand the cognitive and neural basis of auditory hallucinations, in clinical and non-clinical groups.

I studied for my BSc Psychology (2010), MSc Cognitive Neuroscience (2011), and PhD in Psychology (2014) at Durham University. I then took up a lectureship at the University of Central Lancashire in January 2015, where I taught on both Psychology and Neuroscience undergraduate courses, on research methods, techniques in cognitive neuroscience, and neuropsychological disorders, as well as being an active member of the recently developed Brain Imaging Laboratory. I then worked on a secondment to Durham University (2016-2019), where I worked on research projects investigating the phenomenology of hallucinations, as well as their cognitive and neural basis.
