I obtained my BA in Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology at Corpus Christi College in the University of Oxford in 2012, gaining a First Class degree. During my undergraduate I took advanced courses in Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Cognitive Science, Aesthetics, the Social Psychological Basis of Intergroup Conflict, and the Development of Science and Religion. My research dissertation, conducted under the supervision of Miles Hewstone, looked at how Muslim women wearing headscarfs are perceived.
I then completed my MSc in Psychological Research in 2013, again at the University of Oxford, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. I was awarded a Distinction in this, both for my coursework and an extended research dissertation on the role of perceived threat in explaining the relationship between ethnic diversity and negative intergroup attitudes.
I am now completing my D.Phil in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. I am jointly supervised by Molly Crockett, Nadira Faber, and Miles Hewstone, looking at moral behaviour within, and between, social groups (see my Research page for more information). Alongside this, I currently hold a position as a Research Associate in the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics (Department of Philosophy).
In 2014 I was lucky enough to spend 2 months as a Visiting Scholar at Yale University, working on human cooperation with David Rand. And now, for the 2015/2016 academic year I received a Fulbright Scholarship to spend 6 months as a Research Fellow at Harvard University, working with Fiery Cushman and Mina Cikara.
