Research interests

My current research aims to investigate neural oscillations in visual/attention disturbance (hemianopia & hemispatial neglect) after stroke (the BRAVAS-2 trial) with the support of a 4-year Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. My wider research interests include visuospatial attention, pseudoneglect, cognitive aging, stroke rehabilitation, non-invasive brain stimulation (mainly tDCS) and EEG.

PhD Psychology, University of Glasgow.

MSc Human Cognitive Neuropsychology, University of Edinburgh.

BSc (Hons) Psychology, The Open University.
