Psychology (2020 cohort)

Theory of Mind (ToM) is the ability to represent the mental states of oneself and others. I am interested in how this process operates in neurotypical minds and the minds of those with autism and/or alexithymia. I am interested, in particular, in how information about the minds of others, for example their personality and IQ, drive our inferences about their beliefs, desires and intentions in a given situation.

I have recently completed a BA in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. I achieved the Proxime Accessit for the Weizkrantz Prize for best results in my second year.
