Profile

I am a clinical trials co-ordinator at the Centre for Oral Clinical Research, Barts and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry. Previously, I have worked as post-doctoral researcher and trial co-ordinator at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development (CBCD) where I managed a multi-site randomized controlled trial aimed to test the effects of a new attentional control training for infants at genetic risk of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Before joining CBCD, I worked as post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience (IoPPN), where I conducted a preliminary pilot study to develop and test novel approaches for enhancing the development of attention in infants and toddlers at genetic risk of ADHD. I completed my PhD in 2013 at the Institute of Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin. For my PhD, I conducted a randomized controlled trial to test the effects of a new computerised, partially home-based attention-training programme for adults with ADHD. I also studied neurophysiological markers of sustained attention deficits in adults with ADHD using electrophysiology (EEG).
