I’ve recently joined the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (CamCAN) to work on imaging methods with Rhodri (along with Marta, Nitin, Rik Henson, and others). I’m interested in developing and applying multimodal imaging methods (M/EEG, f/MRI) to study the cognitive neuroscience of healthy ageing, the cognitive and neural effects of neurological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, amnesia), and the cognitive processes and neural sources of priming and recognition memory.
I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology from Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island, USA), where, with Bill Heindel, I used EEG to study the perceptual basis of semantic memory. Before coming to Cambridge I did postdoctoral research with John Olichney (Neuroscience program, UC San Diego, California, USA; and Center for Mind and Brain, UC Davis, California, USA), using fMRI and EEG to study memory deficits in MCI and early AD. At the CBU, I have worked with Rik Henson to study the relationship between priming and recognition memory using M/EEG and fMRI, and also to develop a pipeline for group statistical analysis of sensor- and source-level MEG data.
