Antonia Hamilton - Postdoctoral Fellow
My research focuses how people are able to understand another person's intentions from observing their actions. In particular, I am investigating the possibility that we unconsciously simulate observed movements in order to determine the goals and intentions of those movements. This research is conducted in collaboration with Uta Frith and Daniel Wolpert.
I recently finished my PhD in Daniel Wolpert's lab at the Institute of Neurology, University College London, studying the role of signal-dependent noise in the control of human arm movements. I took my degree in Psychology, Philosophy & Physiology at Oxford University . Prior to my PhD, I worked as a research assistant in the Oxford Babylab studying infant language acquisition, and as a maths teacher at Stella Maris Secondary School, Blantyre , Malawi.
