Personal profile

Research interests

  • Social interaction and cognition
  • Speech perception
  • Social robotics
  • Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS)


I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Macquarie University's School of Psychological Sciences and a member of Prof Emily Cross' Social Brain in Action Lab. My research delves into the behavioural and neural mechanisms underpinning social interactions with human and robotic agents, as well as aesthetic appreciation of art. 

I completed my PhD through IDEALAB (International Doctorate for Experimental Approaches to Language And Brain). My research explored listeners’ abilities to recognise emotions in degraded speech and how differing abilities influence cortical activity using fNIRS (functional near-infrared spectroscopy).
