Short bio

As an undergraduate I studied experimental psychology at the University of Central Florida, and worked together with Shaun Gallagher in the interdisciplinary application of philosophy, phenomenology, and experimental psychology to the embodied self. In 2012, I completed a PhD in Neuroscience at Aarhus University within the Interacting Minds Centre, where I worked with Chris Frith and Andreas Roepstorff to investigate how mindfulness-based stress reduction impacts cognitive control and affective neural processing. From 2013 – 2018 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow jointly in the FIL and ICN at  University College London, where I worked with Professor Geraint Rees and Karl J Friston to develop embodied predictive processing models of metacognitive inference. After leaving UCL, I took up my current position as a Research Associate at Cambridge Psychiatry, where together with Paul Fletcher I am investigating clinical and surgical disruptions of brain-body signalling. In the spring of 2019, I have taken up joint positions as an Associate Professor at the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS), and a visiting professorship at Cambridge Psychiatry. 

What is a Fellows' Seminar?

The AIAS Fellows' Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English and open to the public. Registration to the seminar is not necessary.
