A socio-cognitive psychologist interested in how people influence each other.
I am a Psychology PhD Candidate at University of Cambridge in the Social Decision-Making Lab and a Storytelling Fellow at University Arts London studying how social influence, identity and interaction impacts our judgements, beliefs and behaviours. I currently focus on how these social processes influence misinformation susceptibility and how we can increase resistance to persuasion.
My research is supported by the Harding Distinguished Postgraduate Scholarship and the Economic and Social Research Council. I use a combination of methods (experimental, RCTs, behavioural games and interventions) and I am particularly interested in methods that allow us to measure real social interaction between people in real time.
In the Fall 2023 I will be a Visiting Scholar at Princeton University in the Collectives in Cognition Lab.
I am also a mum of two boys, Theodore and Atlas, who were born during my PhD and a violinist in a symphony orchestra.
