I am a Research Associate at the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow. I completed my PhD at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at the University of Cambridge with Professor William Marslen-Wilson. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and Psychology from Harvard University. I am originally from Canada and grew up in Dundas, Ontario.
My research interests lie in understanding how the language system supports the rapid mapping from visual or spoken input to the level of meaning, and how this can inform models of language representation in the brain. I am particularly interested in how different types of linguistic information are identified across time during language processing (letters/phonemes, grammatical information, word meaning, etc.) using neuroimaging techniques such as magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG).
Outside of research, I am a keen photographer, classical violinist, and football/soccer player.
