Research interests

I earned my PhD in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Michigan in 2011, and came to Glasgow in 2015 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Davis, where I investigated mediators of neural plasticity in a cognitive training study using longitudinal fMRI analyses.

I worked as the Lead Scientist for SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network: A Platform for Scientific Excellence) http://www.sinapse.ac.uk from June 2015 until April 2021. Since May 2021 I have taken up the role of Senior Project Manager responsible for the Advanced Imaging workstream of the UKRI SiPF Living Laboratory programme.
