Dr Emma Palmer-Cooper is a Lecturer in Psychology within the Centre for Innovation in Mental Health. My research primarily focuses on metacognition in relation to anomalous experiences, neurocognition, and psychopathology.

I am also interested in Public Engagement, with a particular focus on involving patients and the public in the design of psychological and healthcare research.

I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

I received my BSc in Psychology from Cardiff University and a Masters by Research (MRes) in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Birmingham. I received my PhD in Psychosis Studies from King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. I was previously a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford's Department of Psychiatry with Prof Belinda Lennox, working on Autoimmunity in Psychosis.
