Research summary

I am interested in conducting multimodal investigations (MEG/MRI) to tease apart the processes underlying perception and attention. My PhD project will focus on the role of cortical oscillations in cognition, as well as the application of machine learning methods to MEG data.

Research topics and related papers

Cortical oscillations may hold the key to understanding the building blocks of perception and cognition. On the other hand, machine learning techniques can help us disentangle spatially overlapping patterns of activity. MEG provides both the spatial information and the fine temporal resolution needed to bring these ideas together in order to better understand the role of oscillatory activity in encoding information.
