Research Statement: A Commitment to Open and Reproducible Research

I am an experimental psychologist and data scientist at the University of Manchester interested in experimental pragmatics, open science, and reproducible research. My current research projects include how people understand data visualisations, how readers understand meaning that is implied by a linguistic utterance (rather than that which is conveyed explicitly), the mechanisms by which conditional information is processed and mentally represented, and (more generally) how meaning is integrated across sentences. My research involves the use of eye-tracking to examine moment-by-moment processing. I teach data science and statistical methods to students in Psychology and Biological Sciences with an emphasis on R and reproducibility. I am also an associate member of the eScience lab in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester.

In 2019 I was awarded a Fellowship from the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) that has allowed me to develop and advocate for an open research community across the North West of England. I co-founded and organise the University of Manchester cross-faculty Open Research Working Group, sit on the University Open Research Strategy Group, organised the February 2020 NW Open Research Hub “Beware: Results May Vary” event on Open Research Practices and Reproducibility, and work closely with others engaged in advocating for the adoption of open research practices in nearby institutions. I mentor junior colleagues who are working in the open research space including as part of the SSI and the Mozilla-funded Open Life Sciences programme. I was recently appointed Associate Editor for the journal Collabra: Psychology - this is the official journal for the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science and is centred on the principles of open and reproducible research.
