My main interest is the study of the inter-brain coupling that takes place during joint actions. I am particularly interested in verbal interactions as a type of joint action where language plays a predominant role. How and when the rhythms of brainwaves of different people match each other during a conversation is a key factor in understanding everyday language use.

I'm currently a senior research associate at the MRC Cognition and Brain Science Unit in the Hearing, Speech and Language Group working in collaboration with Professor Matt Lambon-Ralph and Dr Matt Davis to address the role of linguistic processing in inter-brain coupling.
