Reader

School of Psychology

My research combines computational brain image analysis with neuropsychological techniques to understand the basis and consequences of early life brain injuries. I have a particular interest in translating findings into practice that will support children, and people living with epilepsy. The current work of our interdisciplinary team can be found on the Neuropsychology and Paediatric Imaging ...
