BSc (Hons), MSc
I am interested in the role of striatal dopamine in mediating reward-guided behaviours, in particular when making effort-based decisions and in foraging scenarios. By using both cognitive and behavioural neuroscience methods, including pharmacology, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry, and imaging, I hope to translate my findings with the potential of application to clinical populations.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London, with a final year project investigating spatial specificity in vision with regards to second-order adaptation. I also completed a 12 month clinical neuroscience internship at the Anna Freud Centre in association with UCL. Following this, I undertook a Master's degree in Psychological Research at Oxford, working on subjective reward valuation in terms of cognitive effort discounting and sensitivity to risk.
