Research Assistant


I am a Research Assistant on the Listening to Rhythm in Children, BOTNAR, project at the Centre for Neuroscience in Education, run by Professor Usha Goswami and her team. I completed my BSc Psychology at the University of Plymouth before I started my role as Research Assistant.

During my degree I chose to specialize in neuroscience completing my final research project in collaboration with a healthcare company (DDRC Plymouth) under the supervision of Professor Stephen Hall to investigate changes to brain rhythms and visuomotor control as a result of atmospheric pressure changes.  My background interest in teaching and education allows me to utilize the skills gained from my degree such as neuroimaging techniques on a project which has the potential to help children who may struggle in education.

As well as my passion for research I am very committed to sport and fitness, in particular netball I also love to read, cook and craft.
