Since completing my DPhil in Linguistics here at the University of Oxford (submitted: 22 February 2018, defended: 11 May 2018) I have been working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the MORPHON project team in the Language & Brain Laboratory.

Within this project, I am responsible for the design, conduct and analysis of electrophysiological (EEG) and behavioural experiments in which we investigate the mental representations of morphological complexity.

My other research interests include the use of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) techniques for language processing, as well as topics in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and bilingualism.
