New paper in press: Automatic imitation remains unaffected under cognitive load. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance. preprint: psyarxiv.com/38srp

About Research

In my PhD I am looking at the functional neural circuits that underpin our tendency to automatically imitate others using functional magnetic resonance imaging.

I am also interested in the electro-cortical correlates of social cognition in both clinical and non-clinical populations. My MSc research focused specifically on emotion processing and face-voice integration in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and their underlying mechanisms.
