Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow

  • Ph.D. in Cognitive Sciences, University of California Irvine (USA)

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Memory & Sleep Group (PI Bernhard Staresina). My research focuses on understanding how the sleeping brain orchestrates oscillations (ripples, spindles, slow oscillations) to facilitate learning in different memory domains (declarative memory, motor memory, working memory). To understand these processes, I use a combination of imaging techniques (EEG, iEEG, EEG-fMRI, MEG) to elucidate brain representations of memory during online and offline states. 

Prior to joining Oxford, I completed a Master’s in Statistics and PhD in Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine (USA), followed by one year of Postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania (USA). My work is funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship.
