Postdoctoral Research Associate

Research Summary

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Brain & Behaviour Research Group, where I conduct research into the cortical networks supporting perception, memory, and decision making. My current research is focussed on understanding communication between areas of the temporal and prefrontal cortex during sensory processing, and aims to understand how these areas communicate to process incoming information and to form decisions and choices.

My research involves the use of several techniques in combination to link neuronal activity with behaviour. This includes developing behavioural testing paradigms as well as the analysis of both neuroimaging (fMRI), and electrophysiology data to find neural activity associated with sensory features, or outcomes and to quantify how this information is communicated between areas of the brain.
