I am a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Cambridge, Stanford University and the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive & Brain Sciences. Prior to that, I have completed my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience/Neurotechnology at Imperial College London. 

For my Fellowship, I want to understand how frontoparietal brain networks give rise to our powerful cognitive abilities. I will approach this question in two stages: First, by using automated meta-analytic and text mining techniques, I will integrate information from thousands of existing experiments. This knowledge will then be refined using real-time functional neuroimaging combined with machine learning (neuroadaptive Bayesian optimisation) at 3T and 7T. This work will be conducted together with John DuncanNikolaus Weiskopf and Russ Poldrack.
