I am a visual neuroscientist working as a post-doc with Jon Winawer and Marisa Carrasco in the Department of Psychology
and Center for Neural Science at New York University. Prior to this, I received my PhD in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging
from the University of York under the supervision of Alex Wade and as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions PhD Fellow within
the NextGenVis consortium.
My research blends fMRI, psychophysics, and computational modeling to study retinotopic maps in human visual cortex.
I investigate how these cortical maps represent and encode visual information throughout the visual field, and how changes in
neural encoding as a function of visual field location, and individual observer, impact our visual perception.
Broadly, my research targets the following questions:
- How are fundamental visual dimensions (i.e. contrast, spatial and temporal frequency) represented and encoded within retinotopic
maps, and what are the neural computations that support these processes?
- How does the substantial between-subject variability in the structural organisation of retinotopic maps relate to perception?
- How do neural properties in visual cortex, and their perceptual outputs, change in response to neurological and psychiatric disease?
