Clinical tools development within open science framework

I am currently a research assistant on the project entitled Visual Attention After Stroke, which aims to develop a clinical tool for better understanding of impairment of attention following stroke. 

My broad interests are in open science, pre-registration, and methodology. Within the Translational Neuropsychology lab, I am investigating the role of executive function impairments in decisions of mental capacity. For this, I am exploring associations between different tasks of executive function and clinical decision making. I am also involved in validating the newly developed Oxford COMPetency ASSessment (COMPASS) tool and Oxford Cognitive Screen (OCS)-Plus. 

My recently finished MSc dissertation looked at partially validating the Oxford Digital Multiple Errands Test, but focussed on examining researcher degrees of freedom in validation using a multiverse analysis.
