Anna Powell

PhD student


Anna Powell is in the final year of her PhD at Liverpool John Moores University. Her first PhD study found hazardous drinkers reported poorer cognitive function, which mediated the relationship between alcohol use and alcohol-related problems. Her second study found that hazardous drinkers performed faster on vibrotactile reaction time tasks, but that this correlated with poorer subjective function. She is now assessing function using vibrotactile perception across recovery in individuals with a clinical diagnosis of an alcohol use disorder. Anna is also currently systematically reviewing neuropsychological function recovery from alcohol use disorders.
