I’m interested in how listeners attend to a sound in a mixture—and how our ears and brains process sounds. I use behavioural techniques, neuroimaging, and computational modelling to address questions in these areas. Find out more about my research interests here.
I’m currently a Lecturer in Speech and Hearing Science at UCL. I hold a Pauline Ashley Fellowship from RNID. I received a BA in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford, then completed my PhD at the University of York under the supervision of Quentin Summerfield. From 2015-2017, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Brain and Mind Institute (University of Western Ontario, Canada), working with Ingrid Johnsrude and collaborating with researchers at the National Centre for Audiology. I then moved to UCL—first, to work as a postdoctoral fellow with Tim Griffiths and Karl Friston at the Wellome Centre for Human Neuroimaging. I then joined the Department of Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences at UCL as a lecturer in 2021.
