Postdoctoral Research Associate
My research focuses on understanding visual working memory and attention in both health and disease.
I examine the neuromodulation of working memory and attention in normal individuals and their deficits in patients with neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and those at risk of neurodegeneration. My other interests include understanding the neural correlates of rapid forgetting and the interaction between attention and working memory.
I combine psychophysical methods with non-invasive brain-imaging techniques (MEG) and brain stimulation (TMS).
