Ruth Corps

Ruth is a post-doctoral researcher in the Psychology of Language department at the MPI. Her research focuses on how people use language in conversation and, in particular, how the language we study in laboratory studies differs from the way we actually use language naturally. Before coming to the MPI, Ruth completed a post-doc and her PhD at the University of Edinburgh, where she designed experiments investigating how people plan their responses in conversation. Before that, she did a bachelors and research masters in Psychology at the University of Dundee.

In her spare time, Ruth enjoys swimming, climbing, baking, and petting dogs. She also enjoys reading, but this usually leads to naps.
