Background

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.

I am currently a research assistant in Prof Rob McIntosh's lab working on a project that investigates visuomotor mechanisms in Alzheimer's disease.
