Dr Sharon Morein
Sharon Morein (aka Sharon Morein-Zamir) started her academic studies in Ben-Gurion University in Israel before moving to Vancouver, Canada to complete her PhD in Psychology at the University of British Columbia. Having travelled across the world to continue working on attention and multisensory perception, she got side-tracked looking at how people control their actions. This eventually resulted in her dissertation focusing on response inhibition and stopping.
Following this, Sharon moved to Cambridge where she held research associate positions in the University of Cambridge in the Department of Psychiatry and in the Department of Psychology. Presently, she is an Associate Professor based at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge where she is also the co-director of the ARU Centre for Mind and Behaviour. Her research has focused on the different mechanisms underlying behaviour, psychology and neurocognition in a variety of mental health and neurological conditions, including OCD, ADHD and stimulant drug dependence. She is now involved in various projects to better understand hoarding and Hoarding Disorder
