My research interests centre on how we make sense of the world around us, particularly what we see and how this goes wrong after brain injury. 

I am currently investigating visual impairments after posterior cerebral artery (PCA) stroke, in collaboration with Professor Randi Starrfelt (University of Copenhagen) and Dr Alex Leff (University College London).

I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester investigating the functions of the left and right anterior temporal lobes in semantic cognition under the supervision of Dr Paul Hoffman and Professor Matthew Lambon Ralph. From this I have experience working with advanced fMRI acquisition methods, transcranial magnetic stimulation and patient groups.
During my MSc and BSc at the University of York, I was mainly interested in face and object processing and I worked under the supervision of Professor Andy Young and Professor Tim Andrews.
