I joined the CBU in 2004 and completed my PhD under the supervision of Rhodri Cusack. I currently work in John Duncan's team. My research focuses on object representations during visual short-term memory, perception, attention, and imagery. I am interested in the neural substrates underlying these representations and the processes that operate on them, as well as the relationships between them, and the capacity limits within which they operate. I use a combination of fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), MEG (magnetoencephalography), intracranial recordings, and behavioural tasks in healthy adults and aging populations.
