I have a strong track record of applied and translational research, leadership experience of delivering projects with clinical impact, and experience of developing specialist tools for use in brain injury (St Andrew’s – Swansea Neurobehavioural Outcome Scale).
I have a particular interest in emotion deficit disorders and neurobehavioural disability after traumatic brain injury. My research also explores the role of emotional regulation in eating behaviour, as well as the impact of maternal birth experience on perceived infant temperament. More recently I have also started to explore the role of neuroscience in legal decision making.
I am keen to establish interdisciplinary work at the boundaries between scientific disciplines, to explore new ways of engaging with the wider public, and I am committed to raising aspirations in under-represented groups in higher education.
