She has an extensive track-record of externally funded research investigating the brain mechanisms underlying goal-directed behaviour in health and disorder.

Over the past ten years she has focused on non-pharmacological treatments for TS publishing on the therapeutic impacts of exercise and more recently the use of median nerve stimulation.

She has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, MRC, BBSRC, ESRC, NIHR amongst others and has been actively involved in Tourette Syndrome research for over twenty years. In 2009 she was commissioned by UK charity Tourettes Action, with funding from the Big-Lottery Fund, to examine the psycho-social experiences of young people with Tourette Syndrome and she co-authored a Healthcare Technology Association report on the clinical effectiveness and patients perspectives on treatments for TS. Georgina has previously served as General Secretary of the British Neuropsychological Society and a member of the Board of Trustees of Tourettes Action (2014-2023).
