Profile

I completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at Macquarie University in 2012. My Honours research was supervised by A/Prof Veronika Coltheart and Dr Nicholas Badcock and investigated semantic processing of word stimuli in iconic memory. I was awarded the Australian Psychological Society Prize for my thesis.

I commenced a combined PhD/Master of Clinical Neuropsychology degree in 2013 under the supervision of A/Prof Veronika Coltheart and Dr Nicholas Badcock. My research aims to investigate the nature of visual and higher-level semantic processing in iconic memory with a view to better understanding the role of this very early stage of visual memory in subsequent stages of memory.
