Biographical Information

I am currently working on a project developing mathematical models describing stroke recovery. These incorporate medical, neurological, psychosocial and demographic factors in large-scale mulitlevel models using data from the South London Stroke Register. From these we intend to develop predictive patient-specific recovery curves to allow for enhanced diagnosis, prognosis and early recognition of comorbidities and other complex factors. These models will then be housed within a software framework and deployed into the clinical environment to be used by health care professionals.

My background is in experimental cognitive and neuropsychology. My particular interests lie in the relationship between the mind and brain with respect to language. This includes the neural underpinnings of language, neurodevelopment related to language acquisition and the role of language in other higher cognitive functions. I have worked with healthy and clinical populations (Parkinson's, Progressive supranuclear palsy, Corticobasal degeneration) to develop profiles of language function as well as to better understand the neuronal correlates of language and memory. (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK)

I have just left a position at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour investigating the role of emotion in language and action. This research was concerned with establishing the involvement and integration of functionally differentiated neural systems in human behaviour. This programme incorporated aspects of neuroscience (fMRI approaches) and clinical applications with patient populations. (Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition & Behaviour, Nijmegen, the Netherlands)

Prior to this I was researching human multitasking behaviour in virtual environments at UCL. This work focused on factors that contribute to the formation and adaptation of behavioural strategies. This involved testing theories of multitasking and decision making in ecologically valid environments. (University College London, London, UK)

In addition to these foci I have an interest in the social aspect of cognition and how language allows for the development of society and culture. I have worked in social cognition, intelligence and human networks. (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK)
I have started a PhD position at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour investigating the role of emotion in language and action. This research is concerned with establishing the involvement and integration of functionally differentiated neural systems in human behaviour. Specifically how the emotional associates of stimuli (verbal & non-verbal) can affect cognition and behaviour. This programme also incorporates aspects of neuroscience (fMRI approaches) and clinical applications.
