Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of semantic organisation, with particular attention to the acquisition of new semantic information in infants and adults.
 
I am particularly interested in the significant role that sleep plays in memory consolidation and the generalisation of newly-acquired semantic information. I am also investigating the role of attentional strategies in concept formation and memory.
 
In my research, I use a combination of eye-tracking, EEG and polysomnography experimental methods, and I am developing computational models (using a connectionist modelling approach) to complement my empirical work. 
 
In addition, I also work part-time as a Research Assistant in the Language & Brain Laboratory in the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology & Phonetics at Oxford to help explore how the brain processes language.
