I am an Associate Lecturer in the School of Psychology, 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. Following my PhD I 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.
