Research interests

My multidisciplinary approach to research explores both behaviour and cognitive neuroscience related to topics in language, economics, and trust. Although linked by common research methodologies and underlying assumptions, my current research can be separated into four main areas of activity:

·    Neurocognitive investigation of reinforcement learning

·    Electrophysiological study of tool use in Virtual Reality

·    Implicit cues to trust in humans and robots

·    Lexical development in bilingual toddlers
