Dr Antonia Ypsilanti PhD, MSc, BSc

Associate Professor in Cognitive Psychology/Psychobiology, Chair of Taught Programs Research Ethics, College of Social Sciences and Arts


I joined the department of Psychology, Sociology & Politics at Sheffield Hallam University in 2015 in the Psychology subject group. I have extensive teaching experience and have lead on various Departmental and College roles at SHU. Over the last five years, my research has been concerned with understanding emotional processes and how these affect decision-making and mental health in clinical and non-clinical populations. My expertise lies in understanding the interplay between emotion and cognition by utilizing novel methodological tools to inform relevant mental health promotion interventions. My research involves three main strands: Mental Health; Aging; and Risk-Taking Behaviours. I supervise numerous post graduate dissertations and I am the Director of Studies for two funded PhD students and I am a member of the supervision team for several self-funded students. I am the module leader for the elective Level 6 module "Social and Affective Neuroscience" and I teach in the MSc in Clinical/Cognitive Neuroscience.
