Projects per year
I obtained my Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Glasgow in 2016 and spent time as a research assistant at the Berenson-Allen Centre for Non-invasive Brain Stimulation (Harvard Medical School) and as a postdoc at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (University of Glasgow). In January 2019, I joined the Psychology Department within the School of Social Sciences at the University of Dundee as a Lecturer in Psychology.
My research interests are predominantly in cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology and decision-making. In my lab, we employ visual psychophysics, electroencephalography (EEG) and psychometric testing (either alone or in combination) to investigate perceptual and metacognitive decision-making in health, aging and disease.
