Lecturer Psychology


Personal Statement

I am a Psychology lecturer and researcher, interested in social cognitive neuroscience and autism spectrum disorder. I completed a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Geoff Bird at Birkbeck, University of London, and supported by an ESRC studentship in 2014. The PhD research focused on self-other processes in social cognition and used a range of methods including behavioural training and neurostimulation methods.

Following a postdoc position at Aarhus University/ University of Sussex in 2015, I was awarded the prestigious ESRC Future Research Leaders Fellowship, which I completed at the Psychology department, University of Cambridge (2016-2019). In 2020, I took a Lectureship position at Liverpool Hope University.

I joined the psychology department at the University of Liverpool in September 2022.
