Dr Simon Noyce is a BPS Chartered Psychologist and has spent his entire working career in the sector. He started out as a behavioural therapist, then a consultant, working with severely autistic children with very challenging behaviours. This led him into his PhD research examining the bio-psychological role of restrictive and repetitive behaviours (e.g. body rocking, hand flapping and other motor behaviours).
From there Simon developed a career as a researcher and academic, working within the university and with external agencies such as the St Georges Hospital (NHS), Sainsburys and numerous schools providing service for children with ASD. His academic specialisms cover diverse topics from biological psychology, cognition and visual perception, addiction, ASD and research methods and statistics. Simon is currently a member of the ethic review board at Imperial College London (ICREC), and still manages to keep involved in research as much as possible.
