About me

About me

I joined the Psychology team at the University of Stirling in June 2023. Prior to this, I held a Sir Henry Wellcome Research Fellowship at the School of Psychology & Neuroscience at The University of Glasgow (2018-23), where I also completed my PhD in 2016 with Prof Monika Harvey and Prof Gregor Thut.

My research interests include visuospatial attention, pseudoneglect, cognitive aging, laterality, stroke rehabilitation, non-invasive brain stimulation (tDCS/tACS/tRNS and GVS), static/mobile EEG and neurofeedback.

I am currently the Honorary Secretary of the British Neuropsychological Society until Spring 2024, a “Recommender” (action editor) for Peer Community in Registered Reports (PCI-RR) and an action editor of the Neuropsychology section of Cogent Psychology.

I am an Open Science Champion for Psychology at the University of Stirling. Please get in touch if you would like any assistance with improving your open practices, e.g. sharing data, reproducible code, pre-registration, Registered Reports etc.

Please also get in touch if you would like to discuss a collaboration, or potential PhD/MSc/BSc project.

Student office hours: Mondays 10-11am. Office hours are a dedicated time that I am available to answer questions from students and provide support.
