Maira Andrade

Psychology student


I’m a Level 6 undergraduate psychology student at the University of East London. I was the recipient of a UEL Internship award that allowed me to work alongside gambling addiction experts to conduct the current research. Our study focused on exploring the consumer protection and safer gambling practices of forty frequently visited cryptocurrency-based online operators.
I hope to continue investigating cryptocurrency-based online gambling and its potential risks to individuals. My interests also include the cognitive underpinnings of addiction with a focus on impulsive behaviour and decision-making.
