I studied a BSc in Psychology at the University of York and stayed there to complete a PhD. My PhD was awarded in January 2009 and investigated the temporal dynamics of speech intelligiblity mechansims. This approach used vocoded speech manipulations in conjunction with auditory steady-state responses measured via MEG to investigate how salient information contained in a speech signal can be neurally encoded. 

My early post-doctoral positions were joint across the Hull York Medical School and the York NeuroImaging Centre. During this time I worked to develop novel methodological applications for the analysis of oscillatory biomagnetic signals acquired by MEG and EEG. I was also responsible for facilitating research projects involving clinicians and patient populations. This role involved using functional imaging in MR and MEG to answer and investigate clinically relevant diagnostic questions.
