I predominantly teach and assist on the MSc Human Neuroscience programme, mainly focusing on practical implementation of techniques (MRI, EEG and TMS) and supporting data analysis.

Research interests

I have a particular interest in how neural correlates of cognition, especially components relating to executive functioning, are attenuated by social and affective factors. Currently, I am working on how this might manifest under forensic contexts such as deception.
