Alex Lloyd

Hello, my name is Alex and I am a 1st year PhD student at Royal Holloway, University of London. My PhD research is on the role of situational ambiguity in adolescents’ risk taking behaviour. Specifically, I am examining whether being unaware of the probability that a risk will lead to a negative outcome makes adolescents more likely to engage in that risk decision. Prior to this, I studied an MSc in Psychology at the University of Westminster and BSc Psychology & Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire.

I am looking forward to reading your submissions to the Quarterly in the next year. Please feel free to contact me by email ( or on Twitter @Alex_Lloyd93.
