My research applies results from psychology and cognitive linguistics to computational semantics. I am particularly interested in the differences between abstract and concrete concepts.
Because cross-disciplinary work is not as common as it should be, I am a student organizer for the Cambridge Language Sciences initiative.
When I'm not doing worky stuff I like travelling, running, football, tennis and relaxing . I was also also Captain of the Cambridge University Stymies Golf Team, who enjoy doling out punishment to my former university.
