Personal profile

Research Interests

  • Behavioural Neuroscience
  • Learning and Memory
  • Memory Reconsolidation

Teaching Activity

  • Module coordinator for BY1HP1: Physiology for Biologists
  • Personal tutor
  • Final year project supervisor


I joined Aston as a Lecturer in Biosciences in January 2019, where I teach Physiology. Prior to this I was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Memory Persistence Lab at the University of Birmingham, where I investigated how memories are modified or updated via a process called memory reconsolidation. Understanding memory reconsolidation could be extremely important for the treatment of phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and addiction. I love joining in with outreach events and getting to chat to people about how our brains work.
