Research Interests and Techniques

  • Cognitive neuropsychology of visual attention and its influences.
  • Neurostimulation of visual cognition using transcrainal magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES: tDCS, tACS, tRNS).
  • I investigate using patient case studies, clinical groups (such as children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder), TMS and behavioural techniques.
  • Additional interests involve the role of individual differences in perception,  memory, numerical cognition, attention and executive control in special populations such as bilinguals, those with dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum and dyscalculia or autistic/schizotypal traits of the above in neurotypical populations.
  • Coaching psychology
  • Pedagogical research in assessment and feedback, group work.
  • I am happy to supervise Masters and PhD projects on the above topics (and also collaborate on staff projects)
