I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a BSc Hons in Neuroscience, a Masters degree in Research Methods of Psychological Science and a PhD in Psychology completed in the lab of Prof Philippe Schyns using EEG and fMRI to study top-down effects during face processing. I then did postdoctoral research with Prof Winrich Freiwald at Rockefeller University in New York before returning to Glasgow to work with Prof Lars Muckli using fMRI to study predictive processing of sensory information in the visual system. I am also interested in how complex and flexible predictions govern behaviour and emotional responses, and how maladaptive higher-level internal models can be altered with psychotherapeutic intervention. I am a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, working with integrative models of therapy.
