MSC STUDENT IN EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY
Experimental work and modelling in semantic learning
My interests lie within Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience and Machine Learning. My MSc work investigates semantic learning. Specifically, I will examine if behavioural and representational changes during the learning of semantic knowledge are analogous to those observed in artificial neural networks. To achieve this end, we employ behavioural experiments, neuroimaging, and modelling experiments. I am funded by the 1+3 ESRC Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership.
I graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a B.Sc in Psychology in 2021. For my undergraduate thesis I employed convolutional neural networks to predict the allocation of human visual attention in natural scenes and was awarded the Alan B Milne prize for best undergraduate dissertation.
