Research Interests

My current research investigates the role of inhibitory control in science and maths reasoning in adolescence. For my PhD I am partnered with a school in London who I work closely with. As an educational neuroscientist I use behavioural, neuroimaging, and classroom-based studies to ensure my research is scientifically-sound and educationally-relevant.

My postgraduate studies are funded by an ESRC 1+3 CASE studentship, with enhancement for advanced quantitative methods.
