My research focuses on how changes to sensory input can alter perception and cognition in healthy participants and clinical populations. I am also interested in how the brain makes predictions, more specificially what eye-movments can tell us about how these predictions are generated. I use motion tracking, eye-tracking as well as neuroimaging (fMRI/MEG/EEG) methods to investigate these concepts.

Most recently, I have been working on a project in collaboration with Prof. Robert McIntosh that investigates visuomotor mechanisms in Alzheimer's disease.
