I am a researcher, educator and technician with experience in cognitive neuroscience and decision science. I hold a PhD in Psychology and I am currently senior psychology technician at Edinburgh Napier University.
My most recent research is a review exploring the impact of contextual bias on forensic decision making, accepted by the Journal of Forensic Sciences.
My research includes MRI-based investigations into human perception and production of action. More recently I have published papers on the topic of worry and its cognitive implications, and decision making in forensic analysis.
I have taught at the University of Roehampton, London South Bank University, Royal Holloway University of London and the University of Leicester.
I am a keen science communicator and recently won "I'm a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!"
