Biographical details

I completed my first degree in Psychology at Sheffield University before undertaking an MSc in Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. After my MSc I returned to Sheffield University to complete a doctorate in Neuroscience under the supervision of Prof Paul Overton and Prof Peter Redgrave. During this period I became an Open University tutor, teaching Biological Psychology. Once my PhD was complete I moved to Oxford to take up a post doctoral position at the Dept of Pharmacology. During this three year period I also held a Junior Research Fellowship at Somerville College, Oxford and held Stipendiary Lectureship in Neuroscience at Lady Margaret Hall.

I joined the Open University in 2009 as a Lecturer in Psychology and wored on a number of modules, most notably leading the development of a third year sensory neuroscience module. In February 2010 I was accepted as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I established my research at the OU investigating the neural basis of ADHD using an animal module of the condition. In 2015 I joined KCL as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology.
