Biography

I am currently working as a research associate at the University of Manchester investigating visual impairments after posterior cerebral artery (PCA) stroke, in collaboration with Ass. Prof Randi Starrfelt and Julia Robotham (University of Copenhagen) and Dr Alex Leff and Sheila Kerry (University College London).

I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester under the supervision of Dr Paul Hoffman (primary) and Professor Matthew Lambon Ralph. My thesis was entitled "Using neuroimaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation to probe conceptual knowledge in the left and right anterior temporal lobes", where I gained skills working on advanced fMRI acquisition methods, transcranial magnetic stimulation and working with 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 Timonthy Andrews. I conducted two fMRI experiments during my studies; 1) fMRI multivoxel pattern analysis of object category information, and 2) fMRI adaptation paradigm of faces and words.
