I graduated with a BSc in Psychology with Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Nottingham in 2009, followed by a Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2010 and a PhD in Autism research in 2014. My PhD was supervised by Dr Danielle Ropar and Dr Antonia Hamilton and examined the development of visual perspective taking in autistic and neurotypical individuals.
I am primarily interested in how we use information from the world around us to communicate and socialise with others, including but not limited to visual and mental perspective taking, and emotion recognition. I am also interested in factors that contribute towards health and wellbeing in autistic and neurotypical children and adults.
I am a Fellow of Higher Education Academy and a member of the Experimental Psychology Society. I am a member of British Psychological Society Developmental Section, and co-editor of the BPS Developmental Forum.
