My journey as a researcher has taken me through many different areas of psychology. During my BSc, MSc, and a subsequent ‘experience year’ as a lab manager, I have had the chance to explore varied topics. I’ve bounced from linguistic relativity (also known as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis—a super interesting theory that suggests that our language affects our cognition) to visual awareness and perception. (“Does having to ignore certain visual stimuli for a while subsequently make it harder for those stimuli to enter our visual awareness?” Seems not. The more you know!

During my time at a decision neuroscience lab as lab manager and jack-of-all-trades, I got the chance to dip my toes into yet another field of psychology and get acquainted with computational modelling. But as a lab manager I also got my first chance to combine my love of science with my love of designing and organising. During my graduate studies I am grateful to have gotten even more freedom to expand and deepen my skills to a point where I consider myself a scientist, a designer, a project manager, and an all-round asset to the teams I’m a part of. Check out what I do here!
