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. ...

Independent Research Fellow / Birmingham Fellow
Dr Galea is broadly interested in motor control. This ranges from the neural correlates of motor learning to movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. At present, he is particularly interested in how reward/punishment influences our actions and can be used to alter the speed at which our motor system learns or retains new movements.

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.
