I am passionate about equality and diversity, particularly in education. I sit on our departmental equality and diversity committee and our teaching and learning committee. I strongly encourage both staff and students to be open about their experience here at MMU, we are always learning.
I teach for the joy of seeing students develop and flourish into independent learners. I particularly enjoy small group and supervisory teaching.
As someone with an invisible health condition, I have a keen interest in supporting students so they are not disadvantaged in their studies as a result of their disability, health condition, or specific learning difficulty.
Some students who have contact with me will never meet me in person, as I spend some of my time delivering online units on the MSc Conversion. I am approachable and willing to give my time supporting you. Please drop me an email, or post on one of the online forums for the benefit of other students on the course.
I hold a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and an MSc in Psychological Research from the University of Sheffield. I stayed on at Sheffield to complete my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, which was awarded in 2016.
I am a higher education academy fellow (FHEA) and I hold a postgraduate certificate in higher education (PGCHE).
After working as a teaching fellow during my PhD, I worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Sheffield before joining Manchester Metropolitan University as a Lecturer.
I teach on Investigating Psychology and Applied Psychology. I supervise final year undergraduate dissertation projects.
I am the unit lead for Clinical Neuroscience (MSc Conversion) and Individual Differences (MSc Conversion). I supervise dissertation projects on the MSc Conversion and MRes.
I am a cognitive neuroscientist specialising in the electrophysiological measurement of brain signals associated with cognition. For my PhD research, I used Electroencephalography (EEG) to focus on the neural correlates of atypical visual search in the autism spectrum. As a post-doctoral researcher, I worked in multi-disciplinary groups and applied the skin conductance response (SCR/EDR) and EEG to research questions in social and cognitive psychology.
I am interested in the psychobiological impact of stress, particularly in those with brain based clinical conditions.
I am currently conducting a research project on inclusive teaching in Higher Education.
I currently collaborate on a behavioural intervention project seeking to reduce the occurrence of seizure occurrence in non-epileptic attack disorder.
