Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher
The ability to control attention is subtle but essential skill required in even the most simple of tasks. Deficits in the ability to control attention can have a devastating impact on daily living. My research focuses on these kinds of deficits, particularly in stroke. I am interested in the neuroanatomical basis and genetic influences underpinning these deficits, as well as understanding how we can improve assessment and rehabilitation. Of particular importance to me is understanding how these cognitive deficits translate into real life difficulties and exploring whether lab based rehabilitation techniques can have real life impact.
I am also passionate about ensuring good communication between stroke services and the research community so we can work together to ensure stroke survivors are aware of and have access to support and research opportunities.
