I gained my Psychology BSc from the University of York, where I also studied for my PhD under Professor Charles Hulme. I then worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Bristol and York, with Professors Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch. I moved to Leeds as a lecturer in 2008, and became Associate Professor in 2015.

My research interests lie in human memory, with a particular focus on working memory, and cover three of the Grand challenge areas in the School of Psychology (Successful ageing, Successful childhood development, The nervous system and its disorders).
