I am currently doing a postgraduate degree in Evolution of Language and Cognition (Linguistics) at the University of Edinburgh. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a Master of Arts (Social Sciences) in Psychology. In my pre-honours, I was also taking courses in Politics and Central & East European Studies, for which I have an ongoing interest.
My current research interests lie in the Interactive Alignment Model by Garrod & Pickering, intentionality in communication, language acquisition, embodied cognition, fMRI, and political psychology, in particular stereotype formation. I also have an interest in epistemology and multilevel analysis.

As part of my undergraduate degree in Psychology (with courses in Politics and Central and East European Studies) I have written a number of essays which I will upload in the near future.
