I am a member of the Translational Neuropsychology Group, where I am currently working on the development of a novel assessment for cognitive impairments after stroke.
My main focus is on clinically applied research, with previous projects ranging from piloting a new intervention for depression to mapping the progression of neurodegenerative disorders. Within these studies I have used a combination of neuropsychological assessments, non-invasive brain stimulation, and neuroimaging methods.
I am particularly interested in applying this multi-method approach to better understand the causes of both emotional and cognitive difficulties, and use this information to develop support strategies for people living with neurological conditions.
