I completed my BSc in Psychology at the University of York, during which I worked in an eye-tracking laboratory and undertook a summer research project with Daniel Baker. After my Bachelor’s I started my PhD investigating neural noise and gain control in low-level vision. In 2016 I was awarded the EPS Study Visit grant to visit Anthony Norcia’s lab in Stanford University.

Limitations on the processing of sensory signals


My PhD project uses EEG, MEG, TMS, psychophysics and genetic Drosophila models to study visual signal processing in healthy and autistic individuals.

Research group(s)

Daniel Baker’s lab


  • Elsevier/Vision Research Travel Award 2017
