Alex Lloyd

Alex is a research psychologist at Royal Holloway, University of London. He examines why teenagers are more likely than adults to explore new and potentially risky scenarios.

This involves examining why some young people engage in negative risk-taking, such as antisocial or criminal behaviour. Alex has 10 years of youth work experience in a range of settings, from sports centres to youth offending services.

Through his work, Alex advocates for a psychologically-informed approach to youth justice and has given a TEDx talk arguing for a public health approach to youth crime.
