Lecturer in Psychology
I graduated from Northumbria University in 2011 and 2012, obtaining my BSc (Hons) Psychology and MRes Language and Cognition degrees respectively. In 2016, I graduated with a PhD in Psychology at the University of Dundee under the supervision of Dr. Yuki Kamide. Following this, I worked as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow on a Leverhulme funded grant with Prof. Vera Kempe at Abertay University, Dundee.
My research interests are centred on language processing and literacy acquisition.
I have a keen interest in research methods and data analysis and visualisation, with experience in advanced quantitative analyses using frequentist and Bayesian techniques in the R programming language.
