Christine graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Leeds in 2006. During her degree she became particularly interested in the neuroscientific approach to studying behaviour, and so went on to obtain her PhD in Behavioural Neuroscience from the University of Leeds (2010).

After her PhD, Christine worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Behavioural Neuroscience lab at Leeds from 2010-2012. She went on to develop an interest in studying human memory, and undertook post-doctoral work as part of an ESRC grant on Autobiographical Memory awarded to Professor Martin Conway at Leeds (2011-2012).

Following a temporary lectureship at the University of Leeds (2012-2013), Christine took up a lectureship at Sheffield Hallam University (2013-2016), whilst continuing to focus on researching memory. She was also responsible for co-ordinating the departmental research seminar series. She published papers on topics related to memory including autobiographical memory and déjà vu, and began to develop collaborations with colleagues at the University of Bradford (memory in dementia) and Durham University (cognition and mood), both of which are ongoing.

Christine moved to Leeds Trinity in July 2016, where she became a Senior Lecturer in Psychology. She is continuing to work on a range of research projects related to memory, ageing and mood.
