I submitted my PhD on infants’ understanding and use of ostensive signals in interpreting others’ behaviour at Lancaster University. I was supervised by Eugenio Parise, Vincent Reid and Anna Theakston. My PhD was funded by Lancaster University and The ESRC International Centre for Language and Communicative Development. During my final year of my PhD, I visited Stephanie Hoehl’s Early Social Cognition research group at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, where I worked as a research assistant collecting EEG- and behavioural data with 6—20month old infants.

From 2013-2014, I worked at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Psychology and the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences as a research assistant, supporting studies on children’s social and communicative abilities.

In 2012, I completed my Master of Science 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 also took courses on Politics and Central & East European Studies, for which I have an ongoing interest.

I have a keen interest in open science and advanced statistical models, in particular mixed effects models and using Bayes Factors in EEG analyses.
