Research Manager, Brain & Cognition Lab
I'm the Research Manager for the Brain & Cognition Lab, led by Professor Kia Nobre, and I’m funded by the University of Oxford John Fell Fund.
I organise and administrate the activities of the B&C lab, based in the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity. I also help promote translational cognitive research within the University of Oxford.
Since obtaining my first degree in Psychology, I have worked in various University administrative and managerial roles, and have also undertaken postgraduate research in clinical research studies, all within the allied fields of psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience.
I have a long-standing interest in developments in the fields of basic and translational neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience, especially in relation to neurodegenerative disease.
