I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Professor Jenni Rodd on an ESRC-funded project investigating the causal factors that lead to high-quality lexical-semantic knowledge.
Before joining UCL I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Psychology at Aston University (2018-2021). Prior to this I gained my PhD in Experimental Psychology from UCL (2014-2018). I completed my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of York (2013-2014), and my MA (joint Hons) in Psychology and French at the University of Glasgow (2007-2012).
My previous research investigated how we learn new vocabulary through reading, and the different factors that can affect this process, such as the amount of exposure, spelling-to-sound mappings, and previous language experience. My PhD research examined incidental learning of new meanings for familiar words using web-based language learning experiments.
