I am a Research Fellow in cognitive neuroscience working with Professor David Donaldson in the Psychological Imaging Lab, where I use EEG recordings to study cognitive phenomena such as episodic memory and face recognition. I also work with Professor Peter Hancock on ways to improve face recognition. I did both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Stirling. After completing my PhD in 2007, I worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Glasgow from 2008 and then as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh from 2009. I returned to Stirling in 2012.
My current research projects include the effects of emotional valence and arousal on source memory; familiar face identification; and how to improve recognition memory for unfamiliar faces. I am currently funded by the BBSRC.
