David Pedder

PHD Student

David Pedder is currently completing a combined Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology. His research uses electromyography (EMG) and SCL (skin conductance level) to investigate emotion regulation in young and older adults. He is also interested in how conscious breathing can help people in emotional situations.
