I work with Dr Harriet Over in the Social Origins Lab (social-origins-lab.york.ac.uk) on projects looking into bias and stereotypes. I also work on preference and judgement 'nudging' with Professor Steve Tipper (University of York), and on dynamic vision with Professor Brendan Barrett and Dr John Buckley (University of Bradford). In addition to my postdoctoral positions, I have also received project funding from the British Academy and Leverhulme Trust.
Previously I have studied visual/motor prediction and control in healthy and cerebellar impaired patients, developed models of the brain's gravitational motion prediction, and tested ‘mirror therapy’ interventions for children with hemiparetic CP.

- 2013-2016 Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Bradford.
- 2013 Postdoctoral Research Assistant (short contract), Manchester Metropolitan University.
- PhD ‘An investigation into the directional and amplitude aspects of an internal model of gravity’, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, 2015.
- MSc Foundations of Clinical Neuropsychology, Bangor University, UK, 2008.
- BSc (Hons) in Psychology with Neuropsychology, Bangor University, UK, 2007.
Currently I have two main projects: exploring intergroup bias and stereotype development in children and adults; and investigating the attribution and denial of human attributes to human and non-human entities.
I am also working on several other projects: preference, choice, judgement 'nudging'; assessment of dynamic visual acuity; and visuo-motor aspects of elite sporting performance.
