Nicola completed her MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Leeds in 2008. Following this, Nicola stayed on at the University of Leeds to do her PhD, looking at the effects of personality on daily stress processes. This work focussed on Conscientiousness and aimed to determine whether the effects of Conscientiousness on the experience of daily stress may account for the fact that high Conscientiousness is associated with better health and longer life. This research involved collecting daily diary data and performing cortisol analysis. Nicola completed her PhD in 2012, after having a year out with her first child. After some more time out with her second child, Nicola joined the Manchester Centre for Health Psychology as a research assistant in August 2014.
