Visual social attention, emotion and face procesing
I am interested in understanding the neurobiological mechanisms underlying visual social attention and how they break down under psychopathology, with a particular focus on Autism and Alexithymia (e.g. emotion/face recognition deficits). In my experimental work, I make use of psychophysiology and eye-tracking methods to build statistical and computational models of visual social attention.
I am also a sound engineer, so whenever I am not working on my PhD, I am most likely playing with synthesizers, drum machines, Ableton and other shiny things of that kind.
My PhD research is funded by a Clarendon Scholar Award and a Medical Sciences Division Studentship.
