BA. (Hons), MSc.


Research Assistant in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

I am a research assistant with the Attention, Brain and Cognitive Development (ABCD) research group, working on the Attention to Maths project, funded by The Leverhulme Trust.

Professor Gaia Scerif, Dr Alex Fraser, Sylvia Gattas and I are developing and validating new methods to investigate why attention supports early maths learning. A particular objective of the project is the integration of behavioural, eye-movement, heart rate and electroencephalographic (EEG) data.

My main area of interest is early cognitive development; specifically executive function development in the context of socio-economic variability, with the integration of EEG data.
