My PhD research uses multivariate analysis of fMRI and MEG data to study how selective attention processes manifest in the brain, with a particular focus on understanding how frontoparietal "multiple-demand" (MD) regions might facilitate selective attention and goal-directed behaviour more broadly. My work investigates the neural mechanisms of selective attention in young healthy adults, and more recently has looked at how these processes might change following focal brain damage. I am also interested in the link between the MD system and fluid intelligence, and whether (and how) cognitive processes affected by non-MD damage might nonetheless be supported by this system.
My PhD is supervised by Alex Woolgar (Cambridge), Romy Lorenz (Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany), and Elizabeth Michael (Cambridge). My PhD is supported by the University of Cambridge Harding Distinguished Postgraduate Scholars Programme.
