I am interested in the human brain and its functioning in health and disease, which I study using brain imaging, psychophysics and other behavioural methods.
I received my training in visual neuroscience, investigating the properties of the retinotopic visual areas. My postdoctoral work encompasses the fields of affective and cognitive neuroscience, using emotion regulation and memory retrieval paradigms. What I am focusing on in my most recent research is cognitive processing in decision making, what brain networks it involves and how this alters in clinical populations, and varies across the lifespan.
