BA hons, MSc, PhD


I am working in Dr Simon Kyle's group at the SCNi to support multiple studies evaluating the effects of clinical and experimental sleep interventions for insomnia on sleep, cognition, and metabolic health.


My principal research interests lie in the development, adaptation, and application of non-invasive stimulation techniques and psychological interventions to enhance sleep. I'm particularly interested in the experimental manipulation of specific sleep parameters, such as sleep slow oscillations and spindles, in order to investigate their functional implications for the greater cognitive and physiological benefit in both the young and ageing brain.


I previously completed my PhD at the University of Manchester, where my research explored the potential of auditory closed-loop stimulation to enhance sleep slow waves, spindles, and the overnight consolidation of declarative and procedural memories.
