I received a B.A. in Psychology from Trinity College in 2016. During my undergraduate degree, I volunteered as a research assistant in TILDA and in The Infant and Child Research Lab in the TCD Department of Psychology. I began working as a Research Assistant in the O’Connell lab in the Summer of 2016 and I started my PhD in September 2017. My research focuses on the role of prediction in sensory processing.
