Jess Williams

(Ph.D Student)


I am interested in personality and individual differences. My PhD focuses on the sensory, perceptual, and emotional experiences and behaviours of the Highly Sensitive Person.

My research explores the perceptual advantage of high Sensory Processing Sensitivity, especially beyond pre-existing personality traits, such as the Big Five. Also, I am investigating the influence of high sensitivity on dreaming and nightmares.
