Welcome to my website! I am a PhD student in the Metacognition Team at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging at University College London and I am part of the Mental Health and Justice initiative, a multi-disciplinary research collaboration on the concept of support in decision-making capacity. I investigate what role metacognition (‘thinking about thinking’) and advice-taking play a role in decision-making, and aim to investigate this from the: tiny computations to their broader implications.

My work is highly interdisciplinary and I strive to make it accessible to the public. You can read about it on this website. Feel free to contact me to chat about your ideas and suggestions or to talk about research over a coffee!
