I am a doctoral researcher working out of the Creative Cognition Lab at Kingston University, London. I am interested in the role serendipity plays in creativity and cognition more generally. While my primary research field is cognitive psychology, I am shamelessly interdisciplinary and draw inspiration from philosophy, cognitive archaeology and sociocultural historical accounts of creativity

I am secretary of the Serendipity Society and I am keen to promote the systematic and scientific study of serendipity. With Samantha Copeland, I am co editor of The Art of Serendipity (to be published by Palgrave in 2021)
