About

I work in Experimental Pragmatics, an area of Cognitive Science that employs psycholinguistic techniques to investigate theories of how we produce and interpret language in context.

Currently I'm a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oslo working with Paula Rubio-Fernandez on the project 'Vision shapes language: referential communication in blind, sighted and newly-sighted individuals'. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh working with Hannah Rohde and Paula Rubio-Fernandez on a project investigating younger and older adults' choice of referring expressions in interactive contexts and how that relates to memory capacity, executive control, and Theory of Mind. My PhD thesis examined the cognitive mechanisms underlying perspective-taking over the lifespan and the impact of later-life language learning on cognitive ageing.
