I am a senior lecturer in psychology at Liverpool John Moores University with research interests in cognitive performance in pain states and populations with ASD as well as somatosensation in ASD (pain and gentle touch). Before coming to LJMU I completed a postdoctoral role at the University of Bath Centre for Pain Research developing the Bath Test of Attention for Pain (Bath TAP). Prior to this I completed my PhD at Sheffield Hallam University examining the attentional biases for faces in adults with ASD.

My research interests relate to the cognitive functioning and performance of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and individuals experiencing induced, acute and chronic pain. A parallel stream of research interest is assessment of pain experiences in vulnerable populations including Autism Spectrum Disorder and individuals who have engaged in substance misuse.
