Background

I graduated from the University of Stirling with a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2008 and have subsequently worked in a variety of research and teaching roles in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.

Research summary

I am interested in human long-term memory and I investigate both its cognitive architecture and the neural processes that support it. I have expertise in the use of Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) to study episodic memory andĀ face recognition, chiefly using recognition memory experiments.

Current research interests

I am currently interested in how emotion affects recall, and the role that keeping a diary might play in helping to develop the sense of self.

Past research interests

I was funded by the Scottish Imaging Network: A Platform for Scientific Excellence (www.sinapse.ac.uk) from 2012-2014, and by the BBSRC from 2014-2017 on a project looking at ways to improve recognition memory for unfamiliar faces.
