Attention, Brain & Cognitive Development (Scerif Lab)

I am a DPhil student under the supervision of Professor Gaia Scerif. The aim of my research is to investigate how people process faces of differing levels of realism and the effects on memory and attention. To do this we will be using a range of different techniques including behavioural measures, eye tracking, EEG and MEG.  

I will be working with both typically developing individuals and those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), across a range of ages. This will allow us to identify how these processes develop and any differences that result in deficits in ASD. Using this research I hope to create effective interventions for people with ASD who struggle with facial processing. 

I completed my BSc. (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Bangor and my MSc. in Psychological Research at the University of Oxford. My current research is funded by the Medical Research Council.
