Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience


I am an Investigator Scientist at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. My current project involves recruiting patients who have acquired a non-traumatic brain injury, through e.g. stroke or tumour resection, to the Cambridge Clinical Neurosciences Research Panel. As well as working on improving recruitment to the panel, I am aso involved in researching automated methods of characterising the resultant brain lesion in these patients from structural MRI scans.

Research Focus


Executive function





Clinical conditions


Cerebrovascular disorders

Cognitive impairment

Movement disorders



Behavioural analysis

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Neuropsychological testing
