I am a Research Associate in social psychology at the University of Kent. I'm currently interested in what language models (e.g., word embeddings) and social media data (e.g., tweets) can tell us about moral and political beliefs.

My recent work has focused on the psychology of meat eating, speciesism, and the moral circle; with a particular emphasis on the role that language might play in these processes. I am currently working on a Leverhulme-funded project with Aleksandra Cichocka examining political rhetoric and ingroup identification.
