Bio: I completed my B.Sc. (Psychology) and M.Sc. (Psychological Research Methods) at University of Nottingham, where I stayed to complete my Ph.D. (Social Neuroscience) under the supervision of Tomáš Paus. I then became a Postdoctoral Researcher at CEITEC, Czech Republic. Currently, however, I am thrilled to have been given an opportunity to work as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Laboratory of Action and Body (LAB).

 

Research Interests: I am interested primarily in the neural mechanisms and circuitry underlying various facets of social cognition – especially those involved in self-other distinction. I investigate this with behavioural, electrophysiological and neuroimaging methods, and during my time at the LAB I hope to apply the knowledge I have gained with these methods to identify the neural systems behind the processing of our own and others’ faces.
