Natalie's research focuses on visual perception and attention, and how such processes are affected by factors such as healthy ageing and atypical neurological development (ASD, ADHD). Her current research investigates the effects of older-age on attentional control during sensory processing. Natalie's findings suggest age-related alterations in neural pathways that are typically used by younger adults to deploy attention.

Natalie has received her BSc and PhD from the University of Birmingham. Natalie's PhD investigated age-related changes in dynamic attributes of visual attention. She joined BCU in 2018 and is currently leading / teaching Brain and Cognition, Controversies in Psychology, and Neuropsychology modules.
