Cognition to me is

About trying to understand the structures and forms we inherit from our surroundings or create ourselves, and how they impact our encounters with situations, people, images, etc.

I want to study Cognitive Science because

I am interested in what it can tell us about the ways in which we are complex from an inner perspective.

Any specific domain of interest in Cognitive Science

Social and cultural cognition

In the future, I see Cognitive Science

Helping us understand each other better and challenge our ideas of objectivity.

Research interests or other future plans

I would like to study the side of cognition that interacts with how we consume fictional stories, especially within commentary on society.

In my leisure time, I love to

Read SFF fiction and comics, listen to music, drink coffee, watch video essays about my favourite TV and movies
