Personal profile

Biography

I am currently a NHMRC CJ Martin postdoctoral fellow based in Troy Margie's lab at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre (UCL). I use 2-photon imaging to investigate the functional role of different cell types in visually guided behaviours. My research interests also include multisensory integration, brain evolution and retinotopic mapping. Furthermore, I am looking to expand my scientific skills to include disease models in order to develop a research program in systems neuroscience of neurological disorders.

 

I completed my undergraduate training in computer science at the University of Western Australia in 2004, and later a graduate diploma in Physiology at Monash University supervised by Dr Hsin-Hao Yu. From 2010 I worked in the laboratory of Professor Marcello Rosa on computational neuroanatomy projects. In 2017 I completed my PhD, supervised by Dr Leo Lui, examining the neurophysiology of motion perception in marmosets.
