I am currently a Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Leipzig, Germany), working at Prof Arno Villringer’s group, where I study the functional involvement or cardiac frequency and its neural signatures in instrumental learning.
Prior to this position, I completed my doctoral studies at the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science (University of Sussex, UK). Supervised by Dr Ryan Scott, Prof Anil Seth, and Dr Dan Campbell-Meiklejohn, I investigated the role of body, action, and consciousness in our interactions with the world – with a specific focus on instrumental behaviour.
Before my PhD, I spent some time as a research assistant at Dr John Michael’s group at the Mind and Action Research Centre, University of Warwick (UK), as well as as a behavioural science consultant, working on facilitating understanding and decisions in real-world settings. I completed my MSc at University College London (UK) in 2015, after working with Dr Eva Krumhuber on emotion and their expressions in the face. I obtained my BSc from St Mary’s University (London, UK), in 2014.
