Cassie is a cognitive neuroscientist with interests in cognition across the lifespan, health and wellbeing. Her current research is focused on factors that can influence cognitive functioning (e.g. brain injury and stress), and interventions linked with executive functions and health management. Her research predominantly uses a range of neuropsychological assessments and electroencephalography (EEG) to examine the links between brain and behaviour.
Cassie is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Cassie joined UCLan in September 2014 as a Lecturer in Psychology with a Neuroscience speciality. Previously, she held Research Fellow posts at the University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia, Brighton and Sussex Medical School at the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK and an honorary Research Fellow position with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
