About Jessica Hodgson
I am a Senior Lecturer in the Professional Development Centre, College of Social Sciences.
After completing undergraduate and masters degrees in Psychology at the University of Exeter, I worked for several years in Research and Development management in the NHS and for the Universities of Exeter and Bristol.
Following a move to Lincoln I started my PhD under the supervision of Dr John Hudson in September 2012, which was awarded in 2016. I then spent a year undertaking postdoctoral research in Clinical Neuroscience at the NIHR Hearing Biomedical Research Unit, University of Nottingham, on a project investigating cortical markers of atypical language processing in children with and without hearing impairments.
My research explores the neurological organisation of language and motor processing during development and in individuals with acquired brain injuries.
