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 predominately uses fMRI and psychophysics to study retinotopic maps and how basic visual dimensions
are processed by early visual cortex. My current research interests include:
- How are fundamental visual dimensions (i.e. contrast, spatial frequency) encoded and represented within retinotopic maps, and what
are the neural computations that support these processes?
- How does the substantial between-subject variability in the 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?
