I completed my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham in 2014. Under the supervision of Prof Ian Apperly and Dr Peter Hansen, my PhD thesis aimed to explore the functions of parts of the brain typically associated with Social Cognition, in particular, the ability to infer the mental causes of action (termed 'Theory of Mind').
I then went on to work at the University of Oxford as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with Prof Roi Cohen Kadosh on the neurodevelopmental bases of variability in math achievement in children. This is a European Research Council funded longitudinal project in which I am still involved. You can read more about this on my Oxford page or on the study specific website.
I joined Aston in 2016 as a Lecturer in Psychology where, in addition to supporting the teaching and learning in Psychology and Neuroscience, I will continue my research in cognition and the brain.
I am passionate about Open Science and am working towards making all of my work open. I organise an Open Science Working Group within the Psychology Department, which is part of a wider network of groups across the UK. You can find out more about my Open Science on my page on the Open Science Framework here.
I make my neuroimaging data available, where possible. These data can be downloaded by searching for the article title or 'Hartwright' here.
I now also use various preprint services to make copies of forthcoming manuscripts openly available, prior to formal publication, where possible, and where all authors agree. Please visit my page on the Open Science Framework for all available preprints of published manuscripts.
