I joined the Life Sciences Department at the Open University in April 2007.
I did my BPS accredited undergraduate Psychology degree at the University of Strathclyde and went on to study for a Neuroscience PhD with Professor Philip Winn at the University of St Andrews. The research I was involved in aimed to understand the role of the brainstem pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus in higher order (or executive) cognitive processes, processes usually associated with the cortex. Following an (incorrect) diagnosis of laboratory animal allergy I went to the University of Aberdeen to work with Dr John Ross on a large multidisciplinary HSE funded research project to investigate the long term health effects of occupational diving. My role on this project was to set-up and conduct neuropsychological testing. I then returned to work with Professor Winn investigating attention functions of the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus before moving to the University of Abertay to gain some teaching experience. Here I taught 2nd year undergraduate Biological Psychology and honours year Neuropsychopharamcology.
