About Me


I am a Margaret Morris Movement trained dancer and dance teacher. I am also a neuroscientist, studying rhythm in the brain. My strongest qualities are curiosity, playfulness, and courage. With these qualities I come to you as a dance teacher, to show you how to move your body in space safely while at the same time expressing yourself.

My research


A LINGUIST TURNED NEUROSCIENTIST


I have been working in research since 2012. First, I did my PhD in the Neurobiology of Language, then I did a post doc at Imperial College investigating naturalistic language comprehension, and more recently I have been working on rhythm perception in speech.


My project focuses on how musicians and non-musicians perceive speech rhythm differently depending on their musical training.
