Michelle Newman

Hi! I’m Michelle Newman, and am a first year PhD student at City, University of London. I took a more ‘scenic’ route into Psychology, completing my BSc Psychology with the Open University whilst in a full time career in finance. Psychology won over finance, and I went on to complete my MSc in Cognitive Rehabilitation at University of Westminster, before spending a year working as a Research Assistant. My research focuses on cognitive deficits following traumatic head injury, both from a diagnostic and rehabilitative point of view. In particular, I am interested in the role of Executive Functioning.

I am delighted to be the PsyPAG representative for the Division of Neuropsychology. Please feel free to email any comments, thoughts or questions to me via michelle.newman.2@city.ac.uk. You can also find me on twitter @MichelleNewman0 where I write about my two loves – brains and running!
