I joined the School of Psychology at the University of Leicester in 2018 soon after completing my PhD in Psychology (Visual Perception) at Sheffield Hallam University. Before that I graduated with a MSc in Advanced Biological Sciences from University of Liverpool and a double specialisation BSc (Psychology and Biology) from UAIC University of Iasi.


My research area is visual perception with a focus on trajectory perception and visual illusions.
