Adam is an early career researcher who was recently awarded a Collaborative Research Network (CRN) funded part-time Research Fellowship position at the IHR with Professor Beth Hands.
His previous research focused on the relationships between reading fluency and rhythmic-motor deficits in dyslexia and was driven by an underlying interest in the neuroscience of music. He is currently broadening these interests to encompass other neuro-developmental disorders, such as developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD), ADHD etc… and the neural networks involved in motor control.
Adam has several peer reviewed publications from his work and is currently supervising a PhD student.
