After completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Edinburgh Napier University in 2014, I began studying for my PhD in Cognitive Psychology at the University of St Andrews. My PhD focused on the benefits of musical activity on cognitive control and emotional processing abilities. Joining the University of Edinburgh in Nov, 2017, I am now working with Professor Martin Pickering, and Dr Lauren Hadley on a Leverhulme Trust project investigating predictive turn taking in language and music.
