Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science
My first degree was in Human Psychology at Aston University with a placement year at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, working on induced biases in trait anxiety. After working as a researcher at a school for children with autism and severe and complex behaviours, I gained an ESRC scholarship to complete a Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience and Doctorate at Aston University in which I examined the elements of motor timing control that are responsible for the increased variability on paced or unpaced motor timing tasks in children with developmental dyslexia. I then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow on a project examining the genetic basis of developmental dyslexia.
My research focus is on motor timing and temporal processing in developmental populations, with particular reference to dyslexia and comorbid conditions such as ADHD and dyspraxia (DCD). I have research and applied experience in the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience and I am familiar with the developmental assessment and diagnosis processes having been a dyslexia assessor for several years.
My teaching interests are in the fields of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, in particular early brain development, language acquisition and development, developmental disorders, and applied… read more
Continuing my research in temporal processing, I am currently exploring the contribution of error correction mechanisms to the increased timing variability measured in children with dyslexia.
My teaching interests are in the fields of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, in particular early brain development, language acquisition and development, developmental disorders, and applied educational psychology topics. I am an Associate Member of the Higher Education Academy
