Josh says about himself: I am an honours student working under the supervision of A/Prof Ewald Neumann and PhD Candidate Usman Afzali. I am currently interested in the ability of suppressing unwanted memories in individuals susceptible to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I completed my BSc majoring in psychology at the University of Canterbury. I enjoy exercising and playing guitar outside of studying.
