Researcher biography

I currently hold a research fellow position in the School of Psychology at the University of Queensland and an affiliate position at the Queensland Brain Institute. My research has primarily involved developing and applying advanced neuroimaging techniques and computational models to investigate the neural underpinnings of human perception and behavior. More specifically, I have led a number of investigations using fMRI (at both 3T and 7T) to measure brain activity throughout various cortical areas (e.g., visual, somatosensory, motor) as well as in the subcortex. My current research focus is on applying 7T fMRI to measure layer- and column-specific cortical activity in order to study bottom-up and top-down processes in human sensory cortices.
