Current Research and Interests
I am interested in rhythm, that is, the complex patterning of time that emerges in human behaviour and cognition. As rhythm is a feature central to music, language, and motor skill learning, I take an interdisciplinary perspective, focusing on how these activities may or may not be supported by a common neural architecture. During my doctoral studies under the supervision of Dr. Sophie Scott, my research will focus on embodiment and action to address the connection between timing and movement. Previously, I completed my MPhil at University of Cambridge with Dr. Ian Cross and was a Research Assistant to Dr. Jessica Grahn at the Brain and Mind Institute, Western University.
