I did my first degree in Psychology and Masters in Behavioural Neuroscience at the University of Leuven, Belgium. I then completed my PhD (“Visual Enumeration and Estimation: Brain mechanisms , Attentional demands and Number representations”) at the University of Birmingham under supervision of Prof. Glyn Humphreys. Following the completion of my thesis I have focused on merging an experimental approach with the assessment of cognition in neurological patients. My first postdoctoral position was at the University of Birmingham, working on a large multi-centre cognitive assessment study funded by the Stroke Association (resulting in BCoS - Humphreys et al., 2012). I am now working in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford on an NIHR funded project focussed on developing a short cognitive screening tool for acute stroke.
I am a psychology lecturer at Balliol College and St-Anne's College. I mainly teach tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences Course and Part I option: Cognitive Neuroscience. I am happy to supervise research undergraduate and MSc projects relating to cognitive neuropsychology and lesion-symptom mapping. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail.
