I am a Lecturer in the Psychology Department at Swansea University. Prior to this I worked at the University of Nottingham as a Teaching Associate where I also undertook an ESRC funded PhD in Psychology with Dr Mark Haselgrove. Before the PhD I spent time working at the Economic and Social Research Council.

My research has primarily focused on the factors which influence learning and how these can be explained by associative theories of learning. I am broadly interested in the role of learning and attention in a number of different contexts (e.g., clinical, educational). I also have an interest in student employability.
