I was delighted to present my research at the International Society for the Empirical Study of Literature biennial conference in Stavanger (July 2018), and to receive the Outstanding Student Paper Award. The conference was fantastic, with very interesting talks from researchers studying literature, media and narrative-engagement in several different countries. Huge thanks to the hard-working organisers. And Stavanger treated us to the Tall Ships race and a rather magical view of the lunar eclipse - not half bad!




I study the cognitive processes involved in engaging with fictional worlds and with art more broadly, particularly processes related to empathy. Other research intersts include psychopathology and dark triad traits, dementia, mental health and the self. My professional portfolio includes psychology in occupational settings, acting, writing, filmmaking, and applied arts and consultancy in dementia care training, mental health, education and prison services. I teach Research Methods & Statistics for MSc Psychology and run occasional statsistics support clinics, and I'm also the PsyPAG London and Home Counties branch rep. If you're a postgraduate psychologist in the area, do get in touch!
