Summary: I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Florey Institute of Neuriscience and Mental Health
Lucy Cavendish College
Employment: Research Fellow : The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health
Having a diverse but mainly Arts background, at Cambridge I shifted to Sciences, pursuing a PhD in Biology at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. I have always been interested in how people use language in context (pragmatics), and what mechanisms in the brain underlie contextual enrichment. Therefore for my PhD I chose to explore the neural correlates of speech act processing, thus contributing to the emerging discipline of neuropragmatics.
