Adaptive Brain Lab



I studied Philosophy at the University of Cambridge for the first two years of my undergraduate degree before transferring into Natural Sciences (Psychology) in my final year. For my third year research project I looked at the cross-cultural differences in music preferences and how their personality correlates using the results of a large online survey. I joined the Adaptive Brain lab in October 2017 in a 1+3 PhD course with the ESRC.

Outside of the lab I spend a lot of time listening to music, and I also enjoy creative writing.

I am predominantly interested in the use of online and mobile-based studies to determine patterns in participants' behaviour in their day-to-day lives. I am currently using a mobile game to examine how people learn to predict future events. With the online sample we are researching we intend to get a better idea of what individual differences affect people’s prediction strategies. I am particularly examining age, and especially focusing on the differences between adolescents and adults.
