What is it that makes adolescence such a socially interesting time of life?
My research seeks to understand adolescent social cognition and emotion using cognitive neuroscience techniques.
I work in collaboration with the Experimental Psychopathology and Cognitive Therapies group at the Department of Psychiatry as well as with the REDD group at Experimental Psychology.
Sources of Funding
My current research is funded by a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship. Previously, I undertook two years of postdoctoral research with Masud Husain at the UCL Institute of Neurology (2010-11); during this time I investigated working memory and impulsive decision-making in developmental and clinical populations.
From 2005-2009 I completed a Wellcome Trust-funded 4-year PhD in Neuroscience on adolescent social cognition and decision-making at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience supervised by Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and Chris Frith.
