Having completed my ESRC funded PhD in 1991 as a mature student, I worked on my research as a MRC Post-Doc Research Fellow at UCL until 1994. In 1994 I was the first psychologist to be awarded a four-year (1994-1998) Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowship at UCL. While I was at UCL, I taught Intercalated Medical Students who completed their BSc in Psychology within a year. I was then offered a lectureship at Brunel, and was appointed as professor in 2004. I was an EU Invited Scientist to Helsinki University of Technology (2000-2003) conducting MEG research. I have several international collaborations (e.g. Australia, China, Finland, France, Japan, etc).
- PhD Psychology (London)
- BA (Hons) Psychology (Middlesex)
