I originally completed a BSc in Mathematics in 2008 at the University of Glasgow before going on to study Psychology at the same University. I then graduated in 2013 with a first class honours degree in Psychology. I stayed on the following year and completed a Masters degree in Brain Sciences in 2014 under the supervision of Dr Dale Barr, during which we investigated decoding of referential activation during language comprehension using EEG.

I am currently a postdoc with Professor Lars Muckli. Our research aim is to use fMRI to investigate perceptual feedback to non-stimulated regions of visual area V1.
