Psychology Alumni

PhD Researcher in Education (ESRC 1+3)
Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol

Start date: September 2012

Graduation date: January 2019

Research topic: Psycholinguistics

I am researching language processing and in particular sentence processing: what mechanisms and resources are involved in the brain’s computation of how the component words of a sentence fit together, as it unfolds, to help us comprehend the meaning of the sentence? More specifically, my PhD primarily involves experiments on processing of negation in sentences and under what circumstances the presence of negation may disrupt incrementality of processing.
