I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Manchester in 2018, where I won the BPS Undergraduate Award and the BPS Undergraduate Prize (Cognitive section). I then joined the BBSRC London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Doctoral programme and undertook my PhD in the Eccentric Vision lab at UCL with Dr John Greenwood and Dr Tessa Dekker, in collaboration with Professor Valérie Goffaux. Here I investigated the cognitive and neural mechanisms of face perception, using behavioural psychophysics and functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Now, I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the University of York, investigating non-canonical pathways of binocular vision with Prof Daniel Baker and Prof Alex Wade. This project aims to better understand these non-canonical pathways and their role within the wider visual system through a mix of psychophysics, EEG and functional magnetic resonance imaging.
