Crossmodal Research Laboratory (Spence Lab)
My research focuses on applied crossmodal corrrespondences between sound and flavour. Specifically, I am interested in how auditory stimuli can change the way we perceive food and drink.
In my former life, I trained at Le Cordon Bleu’s patisserie program and received a Level 3 Award through the Wine and Spirits Education Trust.
