I've had somewhat of a zigzag path through academia. I left sixth form intent on being a 'professional' kayaker (this meant living out the back of a van somewhere near a river). Then I studied Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Portsmouth, where I discovered that science was awesome and I wanted to do that instead. Specifically, I found that the brain is pretty crazy and I wanted to know more! I then proceeded to complete a Master's in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and recently finished my PhD in Psychology at the University of Bath, where I studied visual impairment and exercise. I currently work as a Research Associated at the University of Bath, where I study audience experiences in live performance and immersive technology (which isn't really anything to do with visual impairment or kayaking).
I currently produce content for the science communication platform: 'SENSE(LESS) Psychology).
