Biography

I give tutorials to Experimental Psychology (EP), Psychology and Philosophy (PP), Biomedical Science (BMS) and Medic students. I currently teach psychobiology and cognitive psychology prelims (first years), Cognitive Neuroscience and Behavioural Neuroscience Part 1 (second years) and an advanced Part II option on Working Memory.

Research Interests

My work examines the neural mechanisms underpinning the cognitive functions that allow us to reach our goals. Every day we are met with a barrage of information from our surroundings, yet few aspects of this information are actually relevant for reaching a goal. I study how the brain recruits and integrates these diverse cognitive functions and the underlying connectivity of associated brain networks.
