My research at the Oxford Babylab looks at the role of sleep in language acquisition during infancy. My doctoral thesis examined how language shapes visual attention and the relationship between language and cognitive development.


Having completed by BSc in Psychology at York in 2010, I went on to do my DPhil at Oxford, completing it in 2015. I am now the Winkler Career Development Fellow in Psychology at St Hugh’s.
