I am currently a Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow at Northumbria University . 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.
