During my time at Oxford University, I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Language and Brain Laboratory, assisting Prof. Matthew Husband on his project "Enriching sentence meanings: Semantic and syntactic mechanisms."

 

 

 

This project analysed Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) from EEG recordings to investigate how people infer the implicit meanings of sentences, and whether distinct mechanisms are required depending on the type of information (semantic vs syntactic) for people to interpret such implicit meanings.

Before this, I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh. My thesis investigated prediction during native- and non-native language comprehension, focusing on the factors that mediate linguistic prediction.
