I am interested in how children with and without developmental  conditions perceive and make sense of the world around them, and the impact that this has on their day-to-day lives.

My current research aims to understand better how autistic and dyslexic children process sensory information, with a particular emphasis on the mechanisms underlying atypical perception. I am using a combination of psychophysics, electroencephalography (EEG) and computational modelling to achieve this aim. I hope that my research will lead to a better understanding of the sensory symptoms experienced by autistic individuals, which may eventually help to develop education and intervention programmes.
