I am a Post-Doc interested in exploring brain activity and its role in cognition. I am particularly interested in the mechanisms of selective attention and working memory, and how these functions and their interactions are supported, regulated and reflected in neural activity. The main goal of my post-doc is to test a new conceptual model of working memory (Manohar et al., 2019) using a combination of computational modelling simulations and analysis of behavioural and neurophysiological data.
