Hello!

I study

  • auditory processing, speech, and language,
  • neural features of conditions such as ASD and congenital amusia,
  • representation of concepts.

My PhD (2016) was completed jointly at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH/NIH) and the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, followed by postdoctoral work at UCL and Birkbeck. I am currently employed at Birkbeck, funded by an Early Career Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust, with ongoing honorary appointments at UCL and NIMH.
