I am interested in cognition and learning from a developmental and comparative perspective. One aspect of my research focuses on how developmental experiences influence cognitive functions and neuroendocrine systems to subsequently shape cognition and behaviour later in life. I also aim to understand cognitive processes involved in perceiving speech and language by comparing perception of vocally-learned signals in humans and songbirds.
My current work is part of a BBSRC funded project "Cognitive decline during ageing: the role of developmental and adult stress" which investigates the effects of stress during different life stages on brain and cognition. I'm also part of the MOB (Mechanisms of Behaviour) group (https://mobgroup.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/)!
