Welcome!


I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham and a  Principal  Investigator at the Center for  Human Brain Health.


The aim of my research is to investigate what insight electrophysiological activity measured at the scalp using  EEG and MEG, can provide on how the brain processes information from the outside world. I am also interested in why certain individuals are more vulnerable than others to developing neurodegenerative disorders.
