Personal profile


Dr Jenny Retzler is a lecturer in Developmental Psychology at the University of Huddersfield with a PhD in Psychology and an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging from the University of Nottingham. Her key research interests are in developmental cognitive neuropsychology, with a focus on the atypical development of executive function and attention and associated pathologies (ADHD, Autism, etc.). 

Prior to her appointment at the University of Huddersfield in September 2018, Jenny worked as a Senior Research Consultant in outcomes research at York Health Economics Consortium, giving her expertise in service evaluations, the measurement of patient preferences, and utility elicitation for health technology assessment.

Jenny is keen to supervise students interested in cognitive and/or developmental research. This may include research in the fields of attention, working memory, executive function, learning disabilities, or neurodevelopmental disorders.
