I am a cognitive neuroscientist using brain imaging to understand the impact of stroke and dementia on the brain. I have a PhD from the University of Cambridge. During my PhD I studied visual short-term memory in order to understand how our brains hold complex information to allow us to navigate our rich visual world.
After my PhD, I joined the lab of Professor Amy Brodtmann at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health where I investigated the effect of ischaemic stroke on structural and functional brain networks.
In April 2018 I joined the lab of Professor Masud Husain in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. Here I work as a Research Associate in Cognitive Neuroscience studying memory and motivation across brain disorders.
I am a passionate science communicator and a vocal advocate for equality in science. I am also a new mum!
