I completed a BSc in Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol in 2012 and then stayed at Bristol from 2012 – 2015 working as a Research Assistant with Professor Jeffrey Bowers. In 2015, I started a PhD in Psychology at the University of Sussex investigating individual differences in visual awareness, supervised by Professor Jamie Ward, Dr Jenny Bosten, and Professor Anil Seth. In 2019, I completed my PhD and joined the York Episodic Memory Lab working with Dr Aidan Horner.
I am interested in exploring the subjective quality, objective performance, and neural basis of episodic memory. I am particularly interested in the phenomenal experience of episodic memories; how we remember the identity of episodic event elements as well as their perceptual detail, and how subjective vividness of memory interacts with its accuracy and precision.
I am currently looking at whether memories of episodic event elements and their perceptual detail are bound into a coherent representation; whether there is dependency between remembering one event element and another, and whether this is true for remembering different types of perceptual detail. I am also investigating the relationship between individual differences in mental imagery and the quality of episodic memories.
