I am passionate about delivering an excellent student experience and particularly enjoy the mentoring aspect of my work. The joy of seeing students develop and flourish into independent learning agents is one of the reasons I love my job.
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.
Many students who have contact with me will never meet me in person, as I spend a lot of my time delivering online units on the MSc Conversion. I am approachable and completely willing to give my time supporting you whether it be on or off campus. 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 Fellow of the Higher Education Academy/AdvanceHE (FHEA) and I am currently studying for an MA in Higher Education.
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 (Year 1) and Applied Psychology (Year 3) and I supervise final year undergraduate dissertation projects.
I am the unit lead for Clinical Neuroscience (MSc Conversion) and Individual Differences (MSc Conversion). I supervise MSc dissertation projects.
I am keen to supervise postgraduate research which utilises electrophysiological methods (EEG, SCR); projects studying neurodevelopmental conditions, or epilepsy.
I am a cognitive neuroscientist specialising in the electrophysiological measurement of brain signals associated with cognition; specifically visual perception and attention.
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.
