  • Research Fellow (Psychology)

Research interests

My current research aims to investigate neural oscillations in visual/attention disturbance (hemianopia & hemispatial neglect) after stroke (the BRAVAS-2 trial) with the support of a 4-year Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. My wider research interests include visuospatial attention, pseudoneglect, cognitive aging, stroke rehabilitation, neurofeedback, non-invasive brain stimulation (mainly tDCS) and EEG.
