NIHR Post-doctoral Research Fellow and Research Clinical Psychologist
I work in the School of Psychology part-time (.6 FTE) on a five-year NIHR Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship for research into the early signs of challenging behaviour in individuals with intellectual disabilities and genetic syndromes. Outside of this, I continue to work clinically with children and adolescents with mental health problems, learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.
Lucy Alford is a keen zoologist whose specific interests lie in the areas of entomology, macroecology, physiology and behavior. Following on from her PhD centered on insect thermal biology and resilience to temperature extremes, she is currently engaged in a challenging and exciting project focused on resilient systems. For this, she is interested in applying her knowledge of resilience ...

Research Fellow in Human Movement Timing and Coordination
Dr Elliott is a Research Fellow in the Sensory Motor Neuroscience (SyMoN) lab. His work investigates how the brain combines information across the senses such that we are able to time and coordinate movements with our surrounding environment. He is currently investigating how groups of people move together in synchrony, occurring in scenarios such as dance, music or simply walking together. Dr. ...

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
My current research examines how the brain controls coordinated movements, and which structures in the brain contribute to the improvement and adaptation of movements during motor learning. My PhD thesis examined how observing the actions of others can modulate the activity of the human motor system.

Research Fellow in Social Neurosciences
Dr Honisch is broadly interested in human movement timing and coordination. She is affiliated with the Sensory Motor Neuroscience (SyMoN) laband currently works with Dr Kimberly Quinn (Social Psychologist). Her present work investigates theoretical models of interpersonal behavioural synchronisation. Dr Honisch also conducts research on multi-person synchronisation in expert dancers and ...

Dr Jiang’s main research interests are image processing and pattern recognition. Now she works with Dr Andrew Schofield for the project "Extract intrinsic image from a single image". They try to integrate the knowledge of human vision system into computer vision system.
Katerina is currently working as coordinator for Dr Joe McCleery’s behavioural and EEG/ERP research on language development in toddlers at high risk of developing autism, funded by the UK-based charity organisation Autistica. She is also working with Dr Kita on further projects on infant’s perception and use of sound symbolism.
She was also involved in ...
