Professor Martin Pickering has received the fellowship for his research investigating the psychology of language and communication.

Based in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences, he conducts research into the production and comprehension of words, sentences, and discourse.

"I am delighted to have been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy. My research is concerned with many aspects of the psychology of language and communication, particularly in relation to how people speak, understand what other people say, and hold conversations. It has been conducted in collaboration with many students and colleagues in PPLS and elsewhere, and I am extremely grateful for the fantastic support I have been given over the years by everyone around me."

The British Academy was founded in 1902 with the aim to fund outstanding research nationally and internationally.

As the UK’s national academy for humanities and social sciences, the Academy provides an international forum for debate and engagement for the world’s most brilliant academics.

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome yet another outstanding cohort to the Academy’s Fellowship. The scope of research and expertise on display across our newly elected UK, Corresponding and Honorary Fellows shows the breadth and depth of knowledge and insight held by the British Academy and which we work hard to harness to help shape the world."
