I am currently a Senior Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow at the Department of Psychology, Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne. My research bridges human movement and cognitive psychology to examine how social cognitive factors influence our interactions with other people and objects. I am also interested in other areas of psychology such as cognitive fluency, and embodied cognition.
I have held postdoctoral positions at the University of Toronto (Action and Attention Lab, Visual Cognition Lab) and the Central European University (Social Mind and Body Group). I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Queensland.
