Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am a Postdoctoral scientist in the Brain and Behaviour Research Group. The aim of our research is to move beyond the study of single brain regions in isolation, in order to gain a better understanding of the complex interactive dynamics that underlie normal and abnormal brain function.
My current work focuses on network interactions across multiple brain regions (with a specific focus on prefrontal areas), using a combination of electrophysiological and modelling techniques. More specifically, I will investigate how spiking and local field potential activity recorded simultaneously from populations of neurons in different areas reflects the encoding and processing of statistical regularities/uncertainties in the environment and how neuronal networks causally coordinate to mediate learning and flexible behaviour via predictive coding.
As part of my work, I also collaborate with neurosurgeons at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and with the Quantitative Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the University of Amsterdam.
