Mark Boyes

Senior Research Fellow in the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology, Curtin University. Research Associate in the Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention, University of Oxford.

Interests span health, developmental, and clinical psychology, with the overarching aim of understanding how both individual difference and social/community variables are related to psychological, social, and educational outcomes across the life-span. I am particularly interested in individual differences in cognitive and self-regulatory processes (such as appraisal, coping, and emotion regulation) and their potential links with emotional vulnerability. I am a Research Associate in the Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention, University of Oxford, where I have an ongoing collaboration with Dr Lucie Cluver on projects examining the impacts of familial HIV/AIDS on psychosocial outcomes for South African children.
