Research overview

My research falls broadly within the areas of cognitive science and embodied cognition.  I am interested in how people's linguistic, bodily and environmental experience shapes their mental representations and how this affects the way they process the world around them.  This research includes investigations of the grounded and situated nature of concepts, the ability of language, body and environment to shape representations and behaviour, and the interplay of linguistic and simulation systems in human cognition. You can see more about my research here.

If you are interested in these areas or in topics related to any of my publications and are interested in pursuing a PhD, please email me.
