About me

I’m a research fellow in psychology using neuroimaging methods to look at brain function and how this influences emotion, cognition and behaviour (CV)

At present, I’m researching how gut bacteria can influence psychological well being and behaviour in children and young people with the SBDL at the University of Surrey and I have a particular interest in how gut microbiota influence brain development in the first years of life.  

Previously, I obtained my PhD in Psychology from the University of Surrey where I developed and applied mobile EEG to ‘naturalistic’ experiments  (Thesis). After this, I carried out neuroimaging studies with children and adolescents using neurochemical analysis and neurofeedback techniques to better understand emotional development.
