I completed my undergraduate degree at University College London (2005-2008), and began a PhD in 2009 at the University of York. I've since been based at York as a postdoctoral research fellow in neuropsychology until 2016 when I joined Surrey as a lecturer.
My primary area of research is understanding language and memory difficulties following stroke. I conduct neuropsychological research with chronic stroke aphasia patients. My work primarily focuses on semantic cognition and stroke, and difficulties in comprehending in everyday situations - such as recognising objects or words, planning for the future or remembering the past. Methods include MRI lesion analysis and behavioural testing, alongside other methods such as experimental psychology, tDCS and TMS - all of which are used to explore the role of different brain regions in comprehension.
