I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Liverpool (BSc Psychology) in 2009. I then worked as a Research Associate at the University of Nottingham before completing my postgraduate studies at Nottingham (MSc Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging) and Loughborough (PhD Mathematical Cognition). Following this, I was a Research Fellow in the MEC (2014-2017), funded by an ESRC Future Research Leaders fellowship. I took up my current position of Lecturer in Mathematical Cognition in October 2017.
