I'm a PhD student at the University of Manchester researching impulsivity and motor control in people with Parkinson's disease, some of whom have additional impulse control behaviours. The project is part of a 1+3 ESRC funded studentship. I recently completed my MRes Psychology degree (2016), also at the University of Manchester.

Previously, I completed my BSc Psychology at the University of Lincoln in 2015, graduating with First Class Honours. I volunteered as a research assistant during my undergraduate degree on a couple of projects looking at spatial working memory and various executive functions in Parkinson's disease, mostly through the use of eye tracking methodology.

Some of my other responsibilities include teaching undergraduate psychology seminars on topics such as history and philosophy of science, as well as perception and action. I also run our lab's journal club, participate in many public engagement events, and use patient and public involvement in my research.

Research interests include:

  • Executive functions in Parkinson's disease
  • Variability of symptoms in Parkinson's disease
  • Eye tracking
  • Visual motion perception
  • Multisensory integration
  • Brain behaviour relationships

 Other interests:

  • Open science
  • Patient and public involvement
  • Public engagement
