  • BSc (Hons) Psychology, Durham University, UK, 2013 – 2016

I completed a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at Durham University. During this time, I undertook research projects looking at body image distortion in females and the assessment of episodic future thinking in an aging population to function as a control group for a visual memory deficit amnesic.

Precision measures of memory-guided generalisation


I am researching the way in which memory is used to guide generalisation processes. I am using both behavioural and neuroimaging techniques to unravel the relationship that exists between these cognitive processes in order to assess how they interact and explore questions related to how commonalities across experiences may impact these processes.
