I joined the University of Sheffield in 2013 as a Psychology undergraduate and graduated in 2016. From there I continued at Sheffield, completing an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Human Neuroimaging in 2017 at which point I quickly began working on my PhD under Prof. Annalena Venneri’s supervisions in the Translational Neuropsychology Group.
