I graduated with an MPsych in Psychology from the University of York, with a focus on Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging (2014-2018). Masters' project: Sliwinska, M., Brown, L., Earl, M., O'Gorman, D., Pollicina, G., Burton, M., & Pitcher, D. (2019). Face learning via short real-world social interactions induces changes in face-selective brain areas and hippocampus. PsyArXiv:

I am interested in the cognitive neuroscience of vision, multisensory integration, and neuroimaging techniques. Currently enrolled in a PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London, exploring the influence of auditory information on the early visual cortex using fMRI, but I am eager to learn new techniques. Future studies might involve the use of TMS or continuous flash suppression.
