I started the Social Brain, Body and Action Lab in 2005 (in fact it was known as the "Cognition in Action Lab" from 2005-2011) when I joined the?Department of Psychology?at Wilfrid Laurier University. I was born and raised in the UK and completed my undergraduate degree in Physics & Sports Science at Loughborough University. I then completed an MSc in Sport & Exercise Science at Manchester Metropolitan University under the supervision of Professor Dave Collins. During my masters study, I realised I was fascinated by the brain and cognition. This interest led me to pursue a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London (UCL). Working with Professor Patrick Haggard, this is where my passion for experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience really grew. I was fortunate during this time to spend several months as a visiting graduate fellow at Harvard Medical School where I worked in the Laboratory for Magnetic Brain Stimulation, under the supervision of Professor Alvaro Pascual-Leone.?From 2003-2005, I was a?Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Melvyn A. Goodale at what is now the Brain and Mind Institute at?Western University, in London Ontario. In July 2014 I moved the lab to the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University where we continue to have fun figuring out humans!
