I'm a cognitive scientist based in Melbourne. You can find me in the Computational Cognitive Science Lab and the Human Complex Data Hub at the School of Psychological Sciences of the University of Melbourne.
I am interested in how the mind acquires and represents word meaning through our experiences with the world and the use of language. Current work includes addresses questions about how meaning or semantic knowledge varies across different languages and cultures, and how bilinguals learn and represent word meaning.
One of my longest-running projects is the Small World of Words project. This community-drive project uses human word association data to map meaning in the mental lexicon across most of the worlds' languages. This project is ongoing, and five minutes is all it takes to contribute to science.
