I am an academic who specialises in phenomenological research. That is, I research the lived experiences of various events in our lives.
As I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist for many years within health settings, most of my phenomenological research focuses on the experiences of health and illness.
In recent years I have become more interested in researching wellbeing and intense positive experiences. There is something so powerful in the experience of a Total Solar Eclipse that we can learn much about human motivation and experience.
I plan to do ongoing research in this area and write a series of books about the psychology of the eclipse and eclipse chasers. You can check out my books on this section.
