About me

I obtained my undergraduate degree in 2003, and PhD in 2007, both from the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. My PhD thesis, supervised by Prof Oliver Braddick, examined the development of visual guidance in locomotion. As a Postdoctoral Fellow at UCL (2007-10), I examined locomotor control in Parkinson’s disease. In 2010 I became a Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I worked with Dr Andy Bremner on the development of own-body representation. Since moving to Durham in 2013, I have examined the development of visuomotor control and own-body perception. My work has been funded by the UK Economic & Social Research Council ('The Development of Own Body Representation in Childhood', 2017-21). For more detail, please check out my website.
