Dr Sean Cowlishaw

Formerly at Lancaster University

Sean Cowlishaw

My Role

I conduct research and support quantitative methodologies in the DHR. I teach postgraduate research methods and statistics in the DHR, including the PhD and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) programmes.

Research overview

My primary areas of research are in the fields of problem and pathological gambling (including effective treatments and psychiatric comorbidity with gambling disorders) and couple or family adjustment to individual psychological problems (e.g., Post-traumatic Stress Disorder; PTSD). I also have interests in the application of quantitative methods to various topics in organisational research (e.g., work-family interactions, volunteering) and longitudinal studies on healthy ageing.  

Career Details

I obtained my PhD in psychology from La Trobe University in late 2009, and held subsequent positions at Monash University (2010-2012). I took up my current appointment at Lancaster University in early 2013.

External Roles

I am a Visiting Fellow in the Centre for Gambling Research (CGR), School of Sociology, ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences, the Australian National University (ANU).
