Auditory Perception and Cognition

I study how people from different backgrounds experience the auditory world and the impact of their mental representations on human cognition and behavior. I develop new methods to enable large-scale online experiments in complex domains, such as high-dimensional perceptual spaces and high-precision tasks where participants' productions are recorded through the web browser.

I believe online research can help cognitive science move beyond traditional psychology experiments that over-rely on Western participants by increasing the reach, scalability, and diversity of human behavioral experiments

I am a Lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London. I am also a visiting researcher in the Computational Auditory Perception Group at Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics. I am interested in understanding the psychological and cultural foundations of complex social behaviour such as music and aesthetics, and the role they play in human societies and cultural evolution.
