Personal profile


I am a cognitive neuroscience PhD candidate. My research uses a non-invasive paedatric magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate how sounds are processed in the brains of young children, and how that might be different in children on the autism spectrum. This project was motivated by the fact that over 90% of people on the autism spectrum experience hyper- and/or hypo-sensitive responses to certain environmental stimuli, such as sound, light and touch, which can impact daily living. This research will explore sensory processing in autism, and will help us to understand more about what makes the brains of people on the autism spectrum unique.
