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. 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!


Next Up: I'll be talking science while the Free Radicals improvise a show around it on 19th October in Reading. Tickets and info



I study the cognitive processes involved in engaging with fictional worlds, particularly processes related to empathy. Other research intersts include psychopathology, dementia, personality, the self and research methods. 


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 advanced quantitative and qualitative research methods and run SPSS and statsistics support clinics.
