I'm interested in the cognitive and neural bases of episodic and semantic memory, which I study using the complementary approaches of neuroimaging (MRI, fMRI), magneto-and electroencephalography (M/EEG), and cognitive neuropsychological studies of impaired memory due to neurological disorders and dementia. My current position is a Methods Postdoc with the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (CamCAN).

See more on my personal pages, the CamCAN website, or the Memory Group pages.

  • Semantic memory
  • Priming and non-conscious memory phenomena
  • MEG, EEG, & fMRI
