Bio

I am a Research Associate in Social Psychology at the University of Kent and member of the Society for the Psychology of Human-Animal Intergroup Relations (PHAIR).


Research

Much of my work focuses on how people think about animal welfare and meat eating. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the following topics:

• Speciesism

• Beliefs about animal minds

• The moral circle

• Natural language processing


My work can be found in peer-reviewed journals such as: Cognition, European Journal of Social Psychology, British Journal of Psychology, and Social Personality and Psychological Science.


Academic history

I received my BSc from the Department of Psychology at the University of York in 2013. Following that, I moved to the School of Psychology at the University of Kent for post-graduate studies which ended in 2018. I then transitioned into a teaching position for a year. Since 2019 I have worked as a Research Associate with Robbie Sutton, Kristof Dhont and Aleksandra Cichocka.
