Research summary

My interest is in the use of magnetoencephalography (MEG) to explore perception and cognition, particularly within the domain of vision.
My current focus is on understanding the role of gamma oscillations in the visual system: How are they generated? What is their functional role? Can they provide information about disease states?

Teaching summary

I currently teach MEG lab practicals and supervise projects on the MSc NeuroImaging course. I also teach on the Doctoral Academy course, 'MATLAB: An Introduction'.
