I am interested in the sense of touch and the malleability of body image. My work uses simple experimental paradigms to alter the way that an individual experiences his or her body (for example, by giving the sense that one's left and right hand are in contact when they are actually separated by at least 15 cm). I have used these paradigms to explore body awareness in neurologically-healthy individuals as well as individuals who have had a stroke.

I work with Dr Anne Aimola Davies and Professor Martin Davies. We hope that our work will lead to a better understanding of 'the bodily sense of self' and ultimately, that our findings may inform rehabilitation programmes for patients following stroke..
