My research focuses on how people pursue goals at the behavioural and neural levels of analysis.
I am especially interested in how people use information about reward to decide whether they should stick with what they're doing or update their approach, as well as how expectations about reward impact motivation.
I received my undergraduate degree in Neuroscience through studies at The University of Otago in New Zealand, which included time at The University of California, Berkeley, in the United States. I completed my PhD at Oxford, funded by the William Georgetti and Rutherford Foundation Trusts.
