IT’S LOVELY TO MEET YOU!

As an academic researcher, I am multi-curious. I have worked across a multitude of fields with a focus on the insights psychology can offer in regard to our senses, business, and perceptions of artificial intelligence.

Currently, I am working together with Centre for the Governance of AI at the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford, conducting survey research to explore the public’s and experts’ perceptions of AI.

 

 

At the societal, policy, and technical level, I believe we need to expend every effort to make sure AI is developed and regulated in the best interests of the public. We must tackle AI through the prism of our humanity, safeguard our rights, and secure a fairer and more just future where humans across the globe can flourish and live healthy and rewarding lives. My current projects are focused on gaining clarity on people’s attitudes towards AI, how they understand AI as a concept and agent, and the perceptions of the myriad of ethical and governance challenges that result from this emerging technology.

I am currently working on a broad spectrum of projects in this space: international surveys of the public, work focusing on what AI researchers and economists think about AI and its impacts, and new empirical work on the role of anthropomorphism and mind perception in our perceptions of AI. I am also helping to organise the International Bisexuality Research Conference – a free one-day global interdisciplinary conference for anyone interested in finding out more about bisexuality research and bi+ experiences on the 25th September 2021.

EDUCATION

My undergraduate years at the University of Oxford were focused on studying a breadth of topics across psychology and philosophy. My undergraduate dissertation focused on pain as a sensory modality and won a Gibbs prize. Whilst completing my Masters in Industrial, Organisational and Business Psychology at UCL, I examined the relationship between the dark triad and emotional intelligence in a review and meta-analysis.

PHD

I completed my DPhil on the associations between colours and shapes at the University of Oxford in 2020. You can download and read my thesis here. It brings together historical and empirical research on colour-shape correspondences through the lenses of multisensory perception, emotions, individual differences, and aesthetics.

BUSINESS

I have worked at the business psychology consultancy YSC and, more recently, as a freelance external research associate for the Swiss business school IMD. I conducted the literature reviews for, co-designed workshops based on, and helped with the development of two books written by Nik Kinley and Schlomo Ben-Hur – Changing Employee Behavior and Leadership OS. I continue to advise on further books from these authors.
