I'm a current EPSRC PhD student at the University of Exeter.
My research focuses on social identity switches and the questions of how much control we have over such switches and how effective they are. To answer those questions my research combines approaches of social and cognitive psychology and incorporates natural language processing.

While I have a wide variety of research interests derived from previous projects and internships, my current main interest lies in social identities and investigating the process of switching between different social identities.
My PhD project "Identity switching: Using natural language processing to understand social identity dynamics" is being supervised by Dr Miriam Koschate-Reis, Professor Aureliu Lavric and Professor Mark Levine.
As part of a lab visit supported by the CLES International lab visiting fund, I was able to visit the Social Identity and Groups Network (SIGN) at the University of Queensland, Australia from March 2020 until July 2021.
