I am a first-year PhD student supervised by Ajay Halai and co-supervised by Matt Lambon-Ralph and Alex Woolgar. My work spans acquired brain injury, neuroplasticity and network neuroscience. During my time at the CBU, I will be working on investigating the mechanistic underpinnings of spontaneous functional recovery observed in aphasic patients and the recruitment of domain-general networks in such processes. I will achieve this by using fMRI, non-invasive brain stimulation and computational modelling to investigate network disruption through a ‘perturb and measure’ approach (i.e., brain stimulation followed by fMRI) and hope to further build on our understanding of the post-stroke neuroplastic response.
