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 anatomical organisation of retinotopic maps relate to perception?
Please feel free to email me if you need any advice on collecting retinotopy data or setting up an analysis pipeline etc.
