Biography

I studied Cognitive Science at the University of Exeter in the Psychology and Computing Science departments, followed by a Masters in Psychological Research Methods, and a PhD in Psycholinguistics. I then took up a series of posts at the University of Aberdeen: Research Fellowship in Computing Science [Natural Language Generation]; Teaching Fellowship in Psychology; Research Fellowship in Computing Science [Scrutable Autonomous Systems]. I am currently working in Psychology at Bournemouth University.

Research

The Computational Linguistics community provides well-specified and fully-implemented models of parser load during sentence processing (e.g., surprisal; entropy reduction). These models await further testing by the Psycholinguistics community using human readers (e.g., by evaluating model parser load predictions against human sentence processing difficulty measured using eye-tracking). My current research aims to carry out some of this testing.
