Personal profile


I studied BSc in Psychology at Bangor University (Wales), before focusing on Neuroimaging during my Masters (in Cognitive Neuroscience) at the University of York (England). Here we used MEG source localisation to identify brain signals (in space and time) associated with visual surprise.

I moved to Queensland (Australia) in 2015 to write my PhD under A/Prof. Pat Johnston at QUT. We used EEG and MEG to investigate whether brain signals of surprise demonstrated consistencies with current which view the brain as a prediction machine.

I recently joined the Cognition & Philosophy Lab (October 2019) to start work as a PostDoc to empirically test current theories of cognition and perception.

My key interests are in:
– Visual perception
– Top-down and bottom-up integration.
– Brain network connectivity and signal propagation.
– Emerging EEG and MEG temporo-spatial analysis techniques.
